The final entry in the Maze Runner film trilogy, The Death Cure, will hit theaters tomorrow. Based on the dystopian YA novel series by James Dashner, it boasts the pretty great cast of Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rosa Salazar, Dexter Darden, Ki Hong Lee, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson and Walton Goggins.
While doing the press rounds for the movie directed by Wes Ball (who was also on helming duty on the previous two films, The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials) and penned by T.S. Nowlin (who, yeah, also wrote the first two films), O’Brien, Scodelario, Brodie-Sangster and Darden sat down with SYFY WIRE to chat about the final Maze Runner film.
Topics include wrapping up the franchise and explaining the film's plot really badly; snatching some memorabilia from set; whether the conclusion will satisfy fans of the books and films; what was the first sci-fi TV series or movie they fell in love with; and who was the best Maze Runner of all time (and THAT answer may or may not surprise you).
When asked whether or not fans will be happy with the conclusion to the Maze Runner series, Darden told us, "I think they will be, I hope so. We do this for them and they've supported us throughout this whole journey for the past five years. So all we can do is hope we make a product that they're proud of and that they'll like it 'cause we're proud of it and we like it. And so I think every question that they had will be answered and I hope that they enjoy the movie as much as we enjoyed making it."
