Dieter Laser to star in Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence
In a move that will surprise no-one whatsoever, Dutch director Tom Six and Human Centipede star Dieter Laser have put their contractual arguments behind them over the forthcoming Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence. Much ado was made over the squabble earlier last year, but it seems the definitely-not-engineered-for-maximum-publicity situation has been amicably resolved and the bonkers German will indeed return for the third installment. Read on for the official gubbins.
Six Entertainment Company announced yesterday that actor Dieter Laser will be back in the lead role in The Human Centipede 3. In March last year the production of The Human Centipede 3 had to be put hold due a legal battle between director Tom Six's production company, Six Entertainment Company, and actor Dieter Laser (who played the villain Dr.Heiter in the The Human Centipede (First Sequence), but recently the law suit has been dropped by Six Entertainment Company.
Director Tom Six said "I know my Human Centipede 3 will be very politically incorrect, but I didn't want to change anything in the script. 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"
Actor Dieter Laser commented "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.”
Dieter Laser will star alongside Laurence R. Harvey (The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)) but will not return as characters ‘Dr.Heiter’ and ‘Martin’ but will instead play a new villain duo with a storyline no-one will expect. Also a big American celebrity will be attached to the film.
Filming starts coming may in the USA and will feature a megalomaniac 500 + human centipede.
The Human Centipede (First Sequence) and The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) were released in the UK by Monster Pictures and distributed by Eureka Entertainment. More details about the third instalment are expected to be announced later this year.
Since its release, The Human Centipede (First Sequence) has become a worldwide cultural phenomenon. Inspired by a conversation over what punishment would be appropriate for convicted paedophiles, Tom Six’s bizarre biological horror film has the distinction of being 100% medically accurate. The film went on to win more than 10 international awards including the awards for "Best Horror Film" and "Best Actor" at Fantastic Fest 2009, "Best Picture" at the 2009 Scream Fest and "Most Memorable Mutilation" at the 2010 Scream Awards.
The highly anticipated follow up, The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence) premiered in 2011 as the opening film at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas and made instant worldwide headlines when the BBFC banned the film outright in the UK claiming the film could potentially harm viewers. The controversy led to worldwide debates and major articles across the world press. After nearly four months of detailed discussion and debate, an agreement with the BBFC was reached and a viable cut of the film that did not compromise the level of horror, was released theatrically and on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK.
The Human Centipede films broke the mould, set a new standard in the horror genre and in the process went on to become major cult hits.
