Walton Goggins is fast filling up his slate for the opening third of 2018. Walton Goggins has officially climbed aboard Wes Ball’s long-brewing YA sequel, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, where he’ll play the volatile Lawrence.
Part anarchist, part revolutionary, Lawrence is considered to be a “voice for the voiceless people,” and those familiar with James Dashner’s third Maze Runner novel will know that The Death Cure largely revolves around Thomas and his painstaking search to find a cure for “Flare,” the pathogen developed in the bowels of WICKED (World In Catastrophe: Killzone Experiment Department).
Cue the inevitable scramble to ward off the impending apocalypse. In light of today’s casting coup, Goggins now completes a roster comprised of Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Ki Hong Lee, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter and Patricia Clarkson, and production is expected to get underway in South Africa in the coming weeks.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure will be with us on February 9th, 2018.
