UTG EXCLUSIVE: Dieter Laser Comments On “Human Centipede 3” Lawsuit

human-centipede-the-first-sequence-13

Earlier today UTG brought you news of Tom Six, the mastermind behind The Human Centipede series, suing actor Dieter Laser for refusing to appear in the trilogy’s final installment. In the article, we mentioned Dieter had yet to speak on the subject publicly, then moments later found ourselves with a personal message from the man himself.

In the hopes of taking nothing away from his words, I am not going to summarize his statement. Here’s what Dieter has to say:

It’s very simple: I loved the story when it was told, got the contract and the promise to have the script in 4 to 6 weeks. When it arrived – half a year later and only after the official announcement – I didn’t like the realization at all, couldn’t identify with the character the way it was written and developed immediately and enthusiastically in a day and night marathon a version full of concrete and practical suggestions which would enable me to play the lead full throttle – same procedure as with Dr. Heiter – but this time it also would have had some unavoidable effects to the dramatic structure. That was too much for Tom and since he couldn’t live with my suggestions and I as a method actor couldn’t identify with his version, I told him that I couldn’t see any other way than that he would have to “change horses”. That’s it.

This story is sure to continue developing, especially considering the relatively quiet public response from Tom Six up to this point, and we will be sure to update you along the way. Stay tuned!
