The Chancellor has arrived! Patricia Clarkson joins ‘The Maze Runner’


Patricia_ClarksonTo all the Gladers, your Chancellor has arrived. One of the most important roles in The Maze Runner saga has finally been cast and they’ve chosen Patricia Clarkson to star as Chancellor Ava Paige. Clarkson’s role in this film is being kept pretty much under wraps, but fans of the books know that she’s one of the keys to figuring out what’s happening with the group stuck in the Glade.

Clarkson joins previously cast stars Dylan O’Brien  Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Aml Ameen, Will Poulter  and Blake Cooper.

Synopsis: Thomas is the latest boy to emerge into The Glade with no memory of who he is or how he got there. A group of other boys his age welcome him into their makeshift society, and explain that they each found themselves in a similar situation.

All around their little agrarian kingdom loom massive stone walls that open each morning to reveal an intricate maze, which changes shape at will. What lies at the end of it? No one has found out, though the fastest and most daring of the boys run into it every day hoping to find out. All they know for sure is that someone is watching them — and those who don’t return before sunset never make it back at all.

The Maze Runner will hit theaters on Feb. 14, 2014.
