We last heard from director Tom Six (The Human Centipede and its sequel) back in May when he teased on Twitter, “Yes twitters. What happened to Lindsay [played by Ashley C. Williams] stuck in between two corpses in #THC and Martin’s [played by Laurence R. Harvey] strange #THC2 ending?: I will reveal all in #THC3.” Unfortunately for some, the star of the first film, Dieter Laser at that point was refusing to reprise his role as Dr. Heiter in The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) because of a lawsuit between him and the production company.
Well, that lawsuit has been resolved and he is back in the film! Also returning is Laurence R. Harvey, who played the villain Martin in the second film. Only they’re not reprising their old roles – they’re taking on whole new ones! They are playing a “new villain duo with a storyline no-one will expect.”
Laser comments on the lawsuit, “I never ever would have thought that all our differences and misunderstandings would in the end lead to an even deeper and warmer understanding and appreciation of each other. In this regard I am actually thankful about the whole fuss because it turned out to be an advantage and a wonderful present for our film and for our friendship.” Six adds, “I am very happy Dieter will follow my vision for a full 100% now and know he is absolutely the most brilliant actor I could wish for.”
The Human Centipede 3 starts filming in May in the USA and will feature a “megalomanic 500+ human centipede”. They are also claiming that a “big American celebrity” will be in the film. Any guesses as to who that might be?
