Tom Six To Sue ‘Human Centipede 3′ Actor Dieter Laser
File this one under the 'Whatever' category. It seems as if 'The Human Centipede' creator Tom Six is going to sue actor Dieter Laser for leaving the third installment of the horror franchise over script issues. PR stunt, or is this actually happening?
Six shouted this out on Twitter this morning:
followed shortly thereafter by this tweet with a little more explanation:
What is going on? After the tweets, a press release was issued that stated the following:
Tom Six’s company will sue Dieter Laser.
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.
This actually sounds like one giant PR stunt for the film. Why would Laser be throwing fits over a script that revolves around actors crawling around on their hands and knees while being taped to each other's butts? We'll keep you updated on this sticky situation. Hopefully they can wipe the slate clean and start over.
