French thesp Omar Sy who played a major role in The Intouchables is set to join one of the most anticipated films of 2015, the fourth Jurassic Park movie, titled Jurassic World.

It’s not a big surprise Colin Trevorrow picked the actor since Sy also landed the part of Bishop in the upcoming blockbuster X-Men: Days of Future Past.

(Although I do find it also weird to see his face with that title.)

Whatever the case may be, Intouchables star Omar Sy proudly announced:


Moreover, Idris Elba and Jake Johnson have also joined the cast, but we haven’t seen Twitter share their announcement.

We don’t really know much more, except that the movie also stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.

But wait, there’s more! Director has uncovered some intriguing stuff:

I know a lot of fans want to see the original characters back. They’re iconic. But I respect those actors too much to shoehorn them into this story for my own sentimental reasons. Jurassic Park isn’t about the bad luck of three people who keep getting thrown into the same situation. The only reason they’d go back to that island is if the screenwriters contrived a reason for them to go. But there is a character from the first film who makes sense in our world. This hasn’t been announced yet, but BD Wong will be returning as Dr. Henry Wu. He had a much larger role in the original novel, he was the engineer of this breakthrough in de-extinction. He spent two decades living in Hammond’s shadow, underappreciated. We think there’s more to his story.”

Trevorrow also plans to shoot the movie using both 35mm and 65mm film.

We’re shooting 35mm and 65mm film. We’re also using an aspect ratio that hasn’t been seen theatrically in a very long time. The movie will be presented in 2 to 1. It’s basically a middle ground between 2.35 and 1.85. It allows us enough height to fit humans and dinosaurs into a single frame, without giving up that sense of scope. It’s very close to the ratio of the digital IMAX screens, so it will look great in large format. I think other filmmakers will want to give it a try when they see how it looks. It’s very comfortable.”

The next part of the dinosaur franchise will be roaring into theaters on June 12, 2015.
