Posted on January 26, 2018 by Dan Goldwasser
Last November, composer John Paesano recorded his score to Maze Runner: The Death Cure. Directed by Wes Ball, this marks the third and final film in the trilogy based on the popular book series, which Ball directed and Paesano scored. Recording took place at the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox, and ScoringSessions.com is thrilled to once more bring our readers exclusive photos the sessions!
