More on Wes Ball

In case you missed the big news yesterday, Wes Ball is set to direct the movie adaption of  The Maze Runner! He is a newer director who has only directed a short film titled Ruin, which Fox also has acquired the rights to make a feature film of.

According to Indiewire,  Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was originally signed on to the project, but dropped out to work on other projects sometime between December 2010 and now.  To the best of our knowledge, Noah Oppenheim’s script is still the official one.

A complete directing greenie is a far cry from James Dashner’s dream directors Christopher Nolan and Peter Jackson, but we can’t judge until we see the movie, which is going to be out in 2014 at the earliest. What is your opinion on Wes Ball?
