No Percy in Half-Blood Prince?

Chris Rankin, the actor who plays Percy Weasley in the Harry Potter films, recently gave an interview to New Zealand's TV3. Chris talked about, in particular, what it is like to be a part of the Potter franchise and also mentioned that it is “unlikely” that his character will be in the upcoming Half-Blood Prince movie, although he is still hopeful that he will return for the final installment of the series.
