First look at the ‘Maze’ and movie update!

Entertainment Weekly revealed the first concept image from “The Maze Runner” movie, which will begin filming on May 13!

The big-screen adaptation of James Dashner’s best-selling novel  is set to release in February 14, 2014 (what a great Valentine’s Day outing).

The image of the ever-changing maze is pretty impressive. It’s much larger than I imagined, mostly because I now know what goes in there and this photo makes it seem impossible.

And there’s more exciting news! We know the main cast! After looking up everyone on IMDB.com, I must say the cast looks good. Except for Newt, they are really close to the descriptions I had in mind (even if these kids make me feel old). 

Lead character Thomas will be played by Dylan O’Brien of MTV’s “Teen Wolf”, while Alby will be portrayed by Aml Ameen.

Here’s the rest of the cast:

Gally — played by Will Poulter

Newt – who I think looks too young, will be played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster

Chuck – played by Blake Cooper

Minho – played by Ki Hong Lee

Teresa – played by Kaya Scodelario

One more fun fact: The movie is being filmed in my home state of Louisiana!
