Oh, this is still a thing? If you missed it, director Tom Six sort of made a name for himself by digusting horror fans with his ass-to-mouth horror "classics," "The Human Centipede (First Sequence)" and "The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)." Quality of the films withstanding, enough people were curoius enough to see a demented doctor stitch mouths to anuses, that a third entry was announced a couple years back, "The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence)." But last spring, Six and his star Dieter Laser fell out over the script (lol) and not much has been heard since. But don't worry gross out fans, the duo and the movie are back on deck.

Update: Dieter Laser has responded to Screenread with his side of what happened and how it affected his approach to the role: "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.”
