Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be in the upcoming Avatar sequel, a spokesman for the film has said.

It had been reported that the Expendables star was to reunite with his Terminator and True Lies director James Cameron for the film, playing a villain.

However, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog, 20th Century Fox has said there is no truth to the rumour.

A Fox spokesperson said Arnie, 66, was not being lined-up to play the baddie or any other role in the sci-fi film.

Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are expected to return for Avatar 2, which is set to be released in December 2016.

Avatar 3 is expected to be unveiled in December 2017, and Avatar 4 will follow in December 2018.

A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
