Our weekend edition of News Bites begins with the unconfirmed news that Tom Six is looking to German acting legend Udo Kier (pictured) to replace Dieter Laser in The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence), which has been delayed due to the clash between Six and Laser. An article back on March 29 revealed that Six would sue Laser, who played the evil German surgeon “Dr. Heiter” in First Sequence, of backing out of the final film. This news is unconfirmed, but will be updated as it becomes official.
A bit of fun came out of an interview between GQ and director Martin Scorsese. When asked about Twilight the director replied: “The vampire thing always works for some reason. Always works,” adding that he “happen[s] to like vampires more than zombies.” When asked why, he replied, “Well, a vampire, quite honestly, you could have a conversation with. He has a sexuality. I mean the undead thing … Zombies, what are you going to do with them? Just keep chopping them up, shooting at them, shooting at them.”
We also found a pretty funny article over at NME that’s just as cool as it is hilarious. The site reports that Slayer have become the latest band to announce that they will be launching their own brand of red wine. The wine, which is fittingly named ‘Reign In Blood’, is a Cabernet Sauvignon from California and not made out of the blood of any sacrificed animals. According to Classic Rock, the wine, much like Slayer’s brand of heavy metal, will have a “tough and uncompromising taste”. Sadly, it’s currently only on sale in Sweden, so you’ll have to order some specially rather than heading to the supermarket. You can find out more about ‘Reign In Blood’ at Brandsforfans.se.
