Bryan Singer tweeted today that “the brilliant” Omar Sy of the French film The Intouchables has joined the cast of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Days Of Future Past. Today’s news about Sy follows a stream of tweets from the director about other castings for the followup to X-Men: First Class including Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Hugh Jackman. Deadline also recently reported that Singer was keen on adding Peter Dinklage for a key role. Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will also return as Magneto and Professor Xavier. Nothing concrete about Halle Berry yet, however.
