Human Centipede 3 In Legal Battle With Dieter Laser?

Chris Savage

Well this is a bit of a strange one. Apparently, B-D received a statement this morning from The Human Centipede producer Ilona Six explaining that the third Human Centipede film has been out on hold to prepare for a legal battle.

The site reports, “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.”

This may just be me, but this sound’s a little bit fishy. Perhaps a marketing ploy? Or maybe a story so bizarre that it is actually real.

What do you guys think?

        It’s very simple: I loved the story when it was told, got the contract and the promise to have the script in 4 to 6 weeks. When it arrived – half a year later and only after the official announcement – I didn’t like the realization at all, couldn’t identify with the character the way it was written and developed immediately and enthusiastically in a day and night marathon a version full of concrete and practical suggestions which would enable me to play the lead full throttle – same procedure as with Dr. Heiter – but this time it also would have had some unavoidable  effects to the dramatic structure. That was too much for Tom and since he couldn’t live with my suggestions and I as a method actor couldn’t identify with his version, I told him that I couldn’t see any other way than that he would have to “change horses”. That’s it.
