To the Silver Screen: Redemption for Writing Errors
With the release of the new Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, analyze the relationship between the plot of a book and its movie adaption. Do writers use movie adaptions to change their past mistakes? For example, James Dashner, the author of the Maze Runner Trilogy. Some fans said the Maze Runner movie erased some aspects of the novel that didn’t make sense or weren’t well received. Do you agree or disagree with this theory? How does the continuance of book adaptations into movies effect this idea? Will we see more authors adapting their novels of errors on the big screen?
