Dylan O'Brien Shares an Update on 'The Maze Runner'

Though Dylan hasn't yet seen the entire adaption of 'The Maze Runner' yet, he has seen a few clips and shares his opinions on the movie below in an interview with Collider.

“No. I’ve gotten to do some ADR, though, so I’ve gotten to see some. It looks beautiful. I hope that people like it. I really think it looks great, so far. I haven’t seen how the movie came out, but the cinematography looked freaking (Substitution) great when I saw it. I was very happy to see that.”

“I just implicitly trust that director, Wes Ball. I absolutely fell in love with that guy, within a week of shooting. He is one of my favorite people. I would do any movie of his, ever. He’s just got such a great energy. He’s so confident without ever being cocky. He’s the most likeable, regular dude, who happens to also be a genius, and have a really good feel for film and storytelling.”

When asked if he was relieved that 'The Scorch Trials' was picked up as an option by Fox, Dylan said “Totally. And the news that it got pushed is good news, even without the option on the second book. It only means that they’re not trying to spit it out. They’re giving Wes more time to get the cut that he wants. It just means that they’re liking what they see, so they’re investing more into it.”

The Maze Runner releases to theaters September 19, 2014, until then check out the new cast stills below.

Divergent Trilogy by Veronica Roth

In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, Tris also learns that her secret might help her save the ones she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

The Mortality Doctrine Trilogy by James Dashner

An all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure from James Dashner, the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, The Eye of Mindsis the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.
Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?
But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.
The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team.
But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.
