Oldman puts the brakes on Speed 2.

Hellraiser actor Gary Oldman has turned down a rumoured pounds 4million pay cheque to play the villain in Speed 2.

Oldman, who was once married to Pulp Fiction babe Uma Thurman, was offered the role of a mad bomber, playing opposite Speed star Sandra Bullock.

A Hollywood insider said: "Gary didn't think the role was for him. Money isn't important. The role was good, but not good enough."

Instead, British-born Oldman has signed a pounds 2.5 million contract to play a baddie in the thriller Air Force One, starring Harrison Ford.
