In a bit of shocking news, it’s come to our attention that Tom Six, director of The Human Centipede films, and his company, Six Entertainment, are suing Dieter Laser, the actor who played Dr. Heiter in the original film and helped launch The Human Centipede series to its current popularity.
This comes as a huge surprise as Laser was slated to return to the series in The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence). As it turns out, things aren’t exactly hunky-dory in Centipede-land. According to Six Entertainment, Laser originally loved the script for the third film in the series, then demanded script changes and finally refused to play the part less than two months prior to filming. Principal photography has been postponed until later this year.
To all the ‘pede fans out there, we wouldn’t worry too much about this. Tom Six knows how to put on a show and what audiences want. If he needs Laser to make this new film a success, you can count on the fact that he’ll work something out.
