Omar Sy's role in Jurassic World revealed!

In an interview with the French website Premiere, director Colin Trevorrow revealed information about Omar Sy's character in Jurassic World, and talked about his relationship with the Velociraptors.
Colin has previously spoken about Chris Pratt's and Omar Sy's friendship in the movie but up until now there has been a lack of information on him and what his role in the film is.
"I wrote the role especially for Omar, I'm a huge fan, I spent a lot of time in France, my wife is French. He has a bigger role than you think - he works for Chris Pratt and is also a Raptor tamer. When Chris, who's in charge, is done with training the Velociraptors, Omar brings them to their cage and takes care of them, checking their teeth, these kind of things. He has a very special relationship with them. There's a great scene with Vincent D'Onofrio when Omar speaks French to the Raptors and Vincent pretends to understand what he's saying. I have not tried to Americanize him - he is French and has a great action scene. Everything he does results in a close relationship with the Velociraptors."
So there we have it, Omar Sy actually plays quite an important role in the film and is close to the lead character Owen, played by Chris Pratt. Colin had a lot of positive things to say about Omar Sy as an actor.
"He is so cool, we used his aura and his acting skills. It's not a common role: anyone could have played Bishop in X-Men: Days of Futures Past. I think they wasted his amazing personality."
And the final important question that they asked: Does Omar Sy's character die in the film?
"Ah ah no! Everybody expects him to die. I think you'll like what we've planned for him. No one wants to see Omar die."
It's great that we are hearing more about the other characters in the upcoming film and it's refreshing to hear that Colin has really gone in-depth with all his characters and uses an actor's personality to better the role.
Courtney James Clark has also spoken very positively about the way Colin works on set and how well he knows each of his characters. This all just makes me even more excited for the film!
Jurassic World sequel in early development
Posted by ChrisLikesDinos - Tuesday 03 March 2015 at 09:12PM - 38 Comments
Welcome back to Jurassic Park. After more than twelve years in development hell, the fourth Jurassic Park film 'Jurassic World' is finally releasing this June. The wait has paid off - the current buzz surrounding the movie is exceedingly positive, with many praising the stories exciting new direction while others are just happy to return to Nublar. Fans have continued to express their excitement and support across the internet, with the first Jurassic World trailer breaking YouTube records, reaching 53.9 million views in one week.
Fans aren't the only ones excited; We've heard that Universal Pictures are incredibly confident regarding Jurassic World. Not only are they very happy with the film and story that Colin Trevorrow has created, they are also projecting strong box office numbers.
Unsurprisingly, early production of a Jurassic World sequel has begun. It's all very 'blue sky' right now, as the current focus is finishing Jurassic World and making it the best movie possible. That said, Universal is moving forward with the franchise, exploring the exciting new story possibilities paved by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
Speaking to Empire Online director Colin Trevorrow has already said he had ideas for future films if Jurassic World is a success.
"We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot," the director/co-writer revealed. "We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story."
A new trilogy was always part of the plan, even when Joe Johnston was involved, so this comes as no surprise. Whether or not Colin Trevorrow will return to direct the sequel or take on a new venture elsewhere remains open, but it is likely he will be involved in the stories direction either way.
As with any industry report, feel free to take this with the appropriate amount of skepticism, but know that we go through lengths to ensure accurate reporting. It's difficult for us to know the possible options without knowing the full story to Jurassic World, but where would you like to see the sequel go? Sound off in the comments section below!
