Actor Gary Oldman looks unlikely to reprise his role as Sirius Black in the next Harry Potter offering, after reports he has been mysteriously axed from the wizard franchise.

Oldman, who has appeared in the last two movies adapted from J.K. Rowling's popular children's books, has yet to be signed for a third term—even though filming for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has already begun.

The actor's manager, Douglas Urbanski, tells British newspaper The Sun, "You will be shocked to learn there are no plans for Gary to appear in the film.

"To say we are puzzled is an understatement at the very least! We are left with no choice but to pursue other employment for him."

Vanessa Davis, spokeswoman for production company Warner Brothers, confirms no deal has been reached, but insists there is still time to resolve the confusion.

She says, "With any film the priority is confirming the cast who will be on the set from the outset."
