Go behind the scenes of The Maze Runner

Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario and more of the cast offer a peek at the set as Wes Ball brings James Dashner's smash-hit novel to life

James Dashner’s hugely popular novel The Maze Runner is leaping from page to screen as director Wes Ball carefully reconstructs life in the Glade for Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), Gally (Will Poulter), Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) and the rest of the Gladers who have no idea why they’ve been sent into the middle of a treacherous maze they can’t escape from.


Barely able to remember anything but their own name, the boys have created their own working society. But the arrival of inquisitive Thomas and Teresa (the first and last girl) sends their carefully constructed life into a spin. 

This is Ball’s big-screen directorial debut and he’s certainly going in hard with a huge maze, killer robotic Grievers and an impressive ensemble cast to contend with. 

So what’s life really like behind and in front of the camera on the set of The Maze Runner? Let the cast guide you around…


The Maze Runner is in cinemas from October
