If you’re attending SDCC you already know this, but there will be a special screening of The Maze Runner! Will will be in attendance, and he’ll be doing a Q&A afterward.
“Maze Runner” fans attending San Diego Comic Con — now’s your chance to see the film two months ahead of its September 19 release.
A special screening will take place at 7:30p.m. on Thursday at SDCC, and afterward, VSauce3’s Jake Roper will host a Q&A with author James Dashner, director Wes Ball, and stars Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, and Kaya Scodelario.
It looks like entry to the event will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis, or possibly at random. If you want to attend, tweet Roper at @VsauceThree with the hashtag #MazeRunnerSDCC.
Those of you who won’t be able to go to the screening, you’ll at least be able to check out the new “Maze Runner” trailer, which will be released [on July 29].
Will just continues to have an awesome year in 2014! Variety reported this week that Will is in negotiations to star along side Leonardo DiCaprio and possibly Tom Hardy in the upcoming film The Revenant! This film is based on the Michael Punke novel, about an 1820s frontiersman on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling. As you probably know, Will is a big fan of Leo, so this will be awesome news for him! This adds yet another film to Will’s long list of upcoming projects, along with the recently announced film, The Yellow Birds. Congrats, Will! This is all still in negotiations, but it’s still really good news. Here’s a snip from the article:
After a long development process, New Regency’s adaptation of “The Revenant” seems to be closer to production. “We’re the Millers” thesp Will Poulter is in negotiations to co-star with Leonardo DiCaprio in the revenge thriller.
Sources also tell Variety that Tom Hardy is in negotiations to join the cast as well.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is on board to direct, with a fall production start date being eyed.
Project is based on the Michael Punke novel centering on a 1820s frontiersman on a path of vengeance against those who left him for dead after a bear mauling. Mark L. Smith and Inarritu penned the adaptation.
Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin, Keith Redmon and David Kanter will produce along with Inarritu, Arnon Milchan and James Skotchdopole. New Regency will co-finance the film with RatPac.
Poulter may have made an impression on Fox execs who saw his talents in the upcoming adaptation of “Maze Runner,” which is already starting to gain a lot of heat.
Will is heading to D.C. to attend the 2014 White House Correspondents’ Dinner! The dinner will be tomorrow night, and you can catch live coverage online at CNN.com. Congrats, Will! What an hour to be invited. Here’s some more info from Deadline:
As always, Hollywood will be putting in an appearance. Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years A Slave, Kevin Hart, The Good Wife’s Julianna Margulies and that other POTUS, Scandal’s Tony “President Fitzgerald Grant” Goldwyn, will be there as guests of Time mag, NBCUniversal, CBS and ABC, respectively. Netflix’s Reed Hastings and Ted Sarandos are also going to be in the crowd again as is the streaming service’s House Of Cards EP Beau Willimon and star Robin Wright. Not saying those videos they were in at last year’s dinner had anything to do with it, but we hear that neither Steven Spielberg nor HoC‘s Kevin Spacey will be among the guests at the Washington Hilton this year. LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, a big-time advocate for production in the City of Angels and SAG-AFTRA member, also will be attending the WHCD this weekend.
