Omar Sy Heads To Jurassic World

From X-Men to post-extinct threats

Omar SyEarlier this week, Jurassic World co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow briefly broke cover to talk a little bit about the focus on the new dinoventure. One thing he didn't reveal was a new cast member jumping aboard, but Omar Sy has done that himself via the medium of Twitter.

Fan of this saga from the beginning, I'm very proud to be part of the cast for JURASSIC WORLD #jurassicworld @UniversalPics @colintrevorrow

Sy, who is gaining some real momentum in the English language stage of his career after catching Hollywood's eye with The Intouchables, will next be seen on our screens as gun-toting mutant Bishop in X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

As for what he'll be up to in Trevorrow's trip to the Park is anyone's guess at this point. We do know that it's set several years after the Steven Spielberg original and stars Chris Pratt as a scientist and Bryce Dallas Howard as a corporate type who come up against the double threat of industrial intrigue and, only slightly more scarily, rampaging terrible lizards. Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, BD Wong, Vincent D'Onofrio and Irrfan Khan are also aboard for the film, which is set for release on June 12, 2015.
