This weekend at New York Comic-Con Dylan O’Brien opened up about what The Maze Runnermovie delay means for the series.
As reported last weekend by Hypable, Fox has pushed the release date for The Maze Runnerto September 19, 2014. Although fans of the book series were disappointed by the news O’Brien stresses that this announcement is a positive move for the series as a whole.
“It means the studio is backing it, and you know, they want to give Wes, the director, and the visual effects team, all the time that they need to make the movie the best version it can be. I’m really happy about… I think it’s so smart what they did,” O’Brien said in comments recorded by Hypable at NYCC on Sunday.
The leading actor of the dystopian thriller goes on to say that being rushed with a movie of this size isn’t what fans should want. “I mean, we wrapped in July, and having it release in February, a big action and visual effects dystopian movie would be kind of insane. So I think it’s great that we’re going to be able to take the time now to make it as good as it can be. The best version of the film it can be.”
In addition, O’Brien reveals that the extended amount of time will give the Maze Runner team more opportunity for press and promotion. “We get to do Comic-Con San Diego next year, which we wouldn’t have gotten to do otherwise, so that’ll be good too.”
Between this news and the announcement that the Maze Runner sequel script for The Scorch Trials is being developed, fans of the franchise should be comforted that Fox is giving the series as much attention as it can afford.
