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?
