Arnold Schwarzenegger won't be back (sorry) for Shane Black's upcoming Predator franchise revival.
The actor has revealed he's read the screenplay for the upcoming reboot of the sci-fi horror series, but wasn't impressed and subsequently turned down an offer to appear in The Predator.
"They asked me, and I read it, and I didn't like it - whatever they offered," Schwarzenegger told Yahoo! Movies.
"So I'm not going to do that, no. Except if there's a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won't do that."
The 61-year-old star played Dutch Schaefer in the 1987 original, the lone human survivor of a predator attack, who goes on to defeat the predator in mortal combat.
It's not known whether Schwarzenegger would be reprising his role - arguably his most famous to date - or providing a cameo appearance in the forthcoming remake.
The Predator takes place after the first two films, but before 2010's Predators - which features Adrien Brody, Laurence Fishburne and Topher Grace under threat from a deadly alien race.
The latest sci-fi action adventure - which began filming in February and is set for release next year - stars Olivia Munn, Boyd Holbrook, Room's Jacob Tremblay, and Jake Busey.
Busey's father Gary Busey starred in the original's sequel - 1990's Predator 2 - playing a secret government agent trying to capture alien life form for military purposes.
Schwarzenegger currently stars opposite Scoot McNairy in Aftermath - a drama based on the true story of the tragic Überlingen mid-air collision in 2002.
