Interviewer: On the scale of ‘Lightening Thief’ to ‘Catching Fire’ how accurate is the movie to the book?
Wes Ball: Structurally, it’s extremely close. There are things we had to change, due to pacing, you just have to change some things. A lot of it’s more about condensing, and sometimes I’d add a few things just to go along with it. It’s pretty close to the book!
James Dashner: Extremely close. Extremely. My editor has even read the script, and she was thrilled. My agent was thrilled, and I was thrilled.
