One of the movies under most people’s radar is director Wes Ball‘s The Maze Runner.  Based on the James Dashner’s young adult novel of the same name, the story centers on a group of teens who appear in an area known as “The Glade” but have no memory when they wake up.  The only way out appears to be through a shifting maze of massive walls that harbor dangerous creatures known as Grievers.  Only one of the teens, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), holds the secret to their escape.  With the film hitting theaters February 14, 2014, you can expect a trailer in the coming months, and a lot more info on the film.  Until then…you’ll just have to trust me when I say it’s a film that could be very cool.

Last weekend at Comic-Con, I landed an exclusive video interview with producer Wyck Godfrey.  He talked about how he got involved in the project, the franchise potential, Easter Eggs, when will we see a trailer, the difficult shoot, filming on location, being at Comic-Con, and a lot more.  In addition, he talked about The Fault in Our Stars, and confirms an ultimate box set of the Twilight movies is coming (he produced all the Twilight films) that will be loaded with new material fans haven’t seen.  Hit the jump to watch.

Note: If you’re just here for the Twilight news, it’s at the end of the interview below.
