*“The Chi” star Jacob Latimore has joined K.J. Apa in “The Last Summer,” a romantic comedy from financier Gulfstream Pictures and director William Bindley.

The story centers on a group of young adults whose lives intersect in Chicago over the summer before they start college. The script was written by Bindley and his brother Scott Bindley, with a polish by April Prosser, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Latimore starred as Emmett Washington on Showtime’s coming-of-age drama “The Chi” and also appeared opposite Will Smith in “Collateral Beauty” and William H. Macy in “Krystal.”

“Jacob clearly stands out as one of the best performers of his generation. We have been impressed with how thoughtful and deliberate he is in making his career choices,” Mike Karz, a producer on the indie pic, said in a statement.

Latimore was also in J.D. Dillard’s Sundance breakout “Sleight” and Kathryn Bigelow’s crime drama “Detroit.”
