The legal battle between Tom Six’s production company and Dieter Laser has already been resolved, with Six Entertainment dropping the lawsuit and both parties seemingly mending their relationship:
“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,” said Six of the situation. “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.”
Now that the legal battle that delayed the threequel is over, The Human Centipede 2 will finally push through, with Laser returning alongside THC2 star Laurence R. Harvey. However, the press release states that the duo will not be reprising their original roles but will play a new villain duo with a storyline “no one will expect.” The PR also states that a big American celebrity will be attached to the film (italics came from the PR).
What’s even better (or worse, depending on how you view the Human Centipede franchise), is that the threequel will feature “a megalomaniac 500 + human centipede.” Yeah, we can’t imagine it either. That sounds like it could make even Godzilla nauseous.
