Get excited Dashner Army!
Author James Dashner, who wrote “The Maze Runner” books, just announced that a prequel is coming and the JJJ Book Club couldn’t be more excited!
“From the very beginning, I’ve always wanted to write a prequel about Thomas, Teresa, Newt, Minho, Alby and all the Gladers that leads up to the very moment Thomas enters the Box,” Mr. Dashner shared in a statement (via MTV). “There are so many things hinted at that will be fun to reveal in depth. For years, fans have made it abundantly and enthusiastically clear that they want the same thing, so now seems like the perfect time to give readers the story of how the Maze began.”
The prequel, titled “The Fever Code” will explore the creation of the Maze, and how the Gladers all got there and hit shelves in 2016.

JustJaredJr.com: So we heard you landed the role after launching a social media campaign. Tell us about that!
Blake Cooper: It all started with a Facebook message from a friend, Olivia. Her message basically said that she heard her favorite book called “The Maze Runner” was being made into a movie and she thought that I would be perfect for the role of Chuck. I had never heard of the book before (surprisingly) and my mom and I decided to look into it and read the book, which we did and absolutely LOVED it. My mom and I agreed that I was perfect for the role so we asked our agent in Atlanta if she could get me an audition.
Unfortunately she could not get in touch with the casting director so I decided to take to twitter and see if I could ask the director (Wes Ball) if he could give me a chance at the role. But, Wes didn’t notice at first until the “Maze Runner” fandom saw it and thought the same as my mom and I did. The fans thought I was perfect for this role. The mob of fans made fan art of me, and cool posters and things. It was one of the most incredible things anyone could do for me (THANKS GUYS)! Eventually Wes took notice and decided to give me a chance and got me an audition. And the rest is history.
