Good news, the movie and marketing can be the best it can be now”, director Wes Ball tweeted today. “These things aren’t my choice, but I 100% agree with fox’s decision. Just imagine the cool stuff we can do with a little extra time”, he addedBlake Cooper, Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf), Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster star in the pic based on James Dashner’s novel trilogy about a group of teens who wake up in a maze with no memory of how they got there.
