Gary Oldman is in negotiation to reprise his role as Sirius Black in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix"
Updating the previous news concerning the speculation of Gary Oldman's absence in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix", the actor has been reported to be in negotiations to reprise his role as Sirius Black. Rumors about this case have spread when the principal photography on the movie has been commenced on February 6 at the U.K.'s Leavesden Studios without Oldman's presence as he at that time had not yet begun his negotiations with Warner Bros. "We're not shooting his part for quite a while, and as is always the case, you begin with the parts that are most pressing," said producer David Heyman. "We have every intention of having Gary Oldman play Sirius Black."
