Wesley Snipes has been ordered to report to jail next week.

The 'Blade' star has been told he must present himself to the Federal Correctional Institution McKean, a medium-security prison in Pennsylvania, by 12.00pm on December 9 to start his sentence for tax-related crimes.

The order came after a judge denied his bid to remain on bail while he waits for his appeal to be heard at the US Supreme Court.

The Hollywood actor was originally found guilty of having "wilfully neglected" to file tax returns for the years 1999, 2000 and 2001 by a US court in April 2008.

In November, his request for a review of his sentence and a new trial was turned down by Florida Judge William Terrell Hodges.

Snipes had appealed the original 2008 sentence on the grounds that some jurors were prejudiced against him, including Kenneth Starr - a financial adviser who pleaded guilty to fraud after acting as a government witness against the actor.
