The Maze Runner at Comic Con

It's been announced that The Maze Runner will be apart of 20th Century Fox's panel time-slot from 4:20-6:20 pm in Hall H on Friday July 25th!

The Maze Runner panel will feature Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, author James Dashner, and director Wes Ball.

Last year Dylan, James, Wes Ball, and producer Wyck Godfrey attended ComicCon at NerdHQ, which you can check out here.

While The Maze Runner's panel will clearly not last the full two hours (the time-slot is shared with many other of 20th Century Fox's films.), we'll get a lengthy panel with the cast and creatives and hopefully some new footage!

The lucky audience members in Hall H will be receiving The Maze Runner exclusive comic book written by director Wes Ball and screenwriter T. S. Nowlin, pictured by Marcus To. Pictured below.

For the second year in a row, The Maze Runner will be at NERD HQ at Petco Park at 6pm for a panel. In attendance will be Kaya, James, Wes, and Dylan.

Additionally, James Dashner is participating in two other panels: Beyond the Page (followed by a signing) and Publishing 360°: Building a Bestseller.  Details below!

Beyond the Page: Friday, July 25, 2014 -- 11:30am - 12:30pm Room 24ABC
Watching your favorite science fiction and fantasy stories come to life is a thrilling adventure; fiction is fabulous fodder for film, and graphic tales make for great games. Books often inspire multimedia projects that allow fans to fully immerse themselves in the interactive worlds authors have created. From books to movies to TV shows and games, these tales resonate with fans beyond the pages of a novel. James Frey (Endgame), Chris Weitz (The Young World), James Dashner (Maze Runner & The Rule of Thoughts), Andrew Kaplan (Homeland), Fred Van Lente (Make Comics Like Pros), James Silvani (Draw-a-sauras), and Melissa De La Cruz (Ring and the Crown) discuss life as writers in the Digital Age and how technology has transformed both their projects and the publishing industry as a whole. Moderated by Walter Jury (Scan).

Publishing 360°: Building a Bestseller Saturday July 26, 2014 -- 6:00pm - 7:00pm Room 25ABC
Authors James Dashner (The Maze Runner) and Christina Lauren (Beautiful Bastard), together with their publishing teams-literary agent Michael Bourret (Dystel & Goderich Literary Agency), executive editor Krista Marino (Random House, Delacorte), literary agent Holly Root(Waxman Leavell Literary Agency), senior editor Adam Wilson (Simon & Schuster, Gallery), and associate director of publicity Kristin Dwyer (Simon & Schuster, Gallery)-discuss their roles and interactions navigating the path from story idea to bestseller. Moderated by authorNathan Bransford (How to Write a Novel).

Lastly a preview screening will be taking place on THURSDAY July 24th at the Pacific Gaslamp Theater in San Diego at 7:30pm. It appears that the screening is first come first serve, so make sure to get there early!
