Jacob Latimore has joined the cast of Fox’s “The Maze Runner” starring Dylan O’Brien.

The pic is an adaptation of James Dashner’s novel and is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a group of teenage boys trapped in an enormous maze seek their freedom.

Noah Oppenheim wrote the screenplay with the most recent draft by T.S. Nowlin. Production starts in Baton Rouge, La. this month.

Latimore can be seen next in the Fox Searchlight pic “Black Nativity” as well as Universal’s “Ride Along.” He is repped by CAA and managers Jeremy Geffen and Larry Rudolph.
