Less than 2 hours after we published our quick chat with German actor Dieter Laser today on his departure from „The Human Centipede 3“ (read it here), producer Ilona Six sent us this official statement on the case which we release unaltered.
„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.”
Laser had played the famous Dr. Heiter in the first part of the trilogy.
