'Jurassic Park 4' Villain to Be Played By Vincent D'OnofrioMike Sampson |
When you think of 'Jurassic Park,' you tend to think of the villains being the giant lizards running around trying to eat people. But, in 'Jurassic Park 4' there will be a more menacing human threat and the film's villain will be played by Vincent D'Onofrio.
D'Onofrio, who has experience playing the bad guy in Steven Spielberg produced movies (see: 'Men in Black'), has joined Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the film as the unnamed villain. It's unclear what makes him the villain, but we'll expect he'll play a role not unlike Paul Reiser in 'Aliens'. (In fact, the more we think about it, the more we think this movie sounds like it could be a lot like 'Aliens'...)
The original 'Jurassic Park' was mostly devoid of a human villain, save for Dennis Nedry (played by 'Seinfeld' star Wayne Knight). The real villains of the movie were the velociraptors. In fact, certain elements of the movie played out like a slasher film with the raptors standing in for Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees.
Also joining the 'Jurassic Park 4' cast is Irrfan Khan, the Indian star of 'Slumdog Millionaire' and 'Life of Pi' though it's unclear what role he'd be playing in the film.
'Jurassic Park 4' is scheduled to start filming this summer for a June 12, 2015 release.
