We received a statement this morning from The Human Centipede producer Ilona Six explaining that production has been delayed on The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) as they prepare to do legal battle with franchise star Dieter Laser (pictured left).
“Tom Six’s company will sue Dieter Laser,” she tells Bloody.
“Because of the success of The Human Centipede, it seems that Mr Dieter Laser’s ego has grown to laughably big proportions. First signing the contract and rating the THC3 script as fantastic, and then demanding his own unacceptable script changes, and now refusing to play the part only seven weeks prior to shooting.
Six Entertainment Company will start legal action against Dieter Laser. Tom Six says not to worry – principal photography will be postponed and will take place later this year.”
Principal photography was to begin this May in the States, with Laser and Laurence R. Harvey both returning in starring roles. Laser played the evil German surgeon “Dr. Heiter” in First Sequence, while Harvey played the creepy “Martin” – a man obsessed with Six’s first film – in the sequel Full Sequence. Franchise director Tom Six will play an unknown supporting role in what they’re calling “100% politically incorrect.” Six recently revealed that he’s working on a 500-person centipede. YIKES!
*Editor’s Note: The opinions and statements of Ilona Six are not those of Bloody Disgusting. Not to mention that we don’t know if this is a brilliant publicity stunt or not. We’ll play it safe…
