Book News: 'Teen Wolf' star cast in upcoming 'The Maze Runner' movie

A while ago, an announcement was released stating that The Maze Runner by James Dashner is coming to film and is expected to release on February 14, 2014.  Wes Ball will direct the film.

Book Synopsis:
When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he’s not alone. When the lift’s doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade—a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.
Just like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they’ve closed tight. And every thirty days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up—the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers. 
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

Since the press release went out about this film, a few characters have been cast.  But two days ago, the lead role of Thomas was cast.  Here is a summary of cast so far:
