Oldman Quits Star Wars Sequel

Wild actor GARY OLDMAN has pulled out of the next STAR WARS movie because he refuses to work overseas illegally.

The SPIDER-MAN 2 star had agreed to be the voice of evil Jedi knight killer GENERAL GRIEVOUS in STAR WARS: REVENGE OF THE SITH, but quit the production because it was made outside the SCREEN ACTOR'S GUILD rules.

Oldman's spokesman explains, "Gary was excited and looking forward to working on the film. The snag is that the movie is being made without members of the Screen Actor's Guild.

"It means Gary would have been working illegally overseas. Out of respect and solidarity with the other members, he could not and would not consider violating the rules of his union."
