The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)

Dear twitter segments, tomorrow I will give you all some life changing #humancentipede3 news!
'Human Centipede 3': Stars and director Tom Six will return for the final part of the controversial horror trilogy -- EXCLUSIVE
Human Centipede franchise stars Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey will both play lead roles in Human Centipede Part 3 (Final Sequence). The controversial horror series’ writer-director Tom Six has also cast himself in a supporting part for the concluding entry in the Human Centipede trilogy.
This casting, which has been exclusively revealed to EW by producer Ilona Six, will be big news for fans of the Human Centipede movies. German actor Laser chillingly played a crazed surgeon who stitches three people together in the first film while U.K. actor Harvey portrayed an equally deranged parking lot attendant called Martin who goes one better (actually, around eight better) in the second entry, which was initially banned in Britain.
The first Human Centipede film became instantly infamous upon its release in 2010 and has been parodied by South Park and Funny or Die, amongst others.
According to Ilona Six, principal photography on Human Centipede 3 will take place this May and June in the southern states of the U.S. The producer also confirmed that the American finale of the series is set for a 2013 release and will be “100 percent politically incorrect.”
And in the back corner of a high school creative writing class somewhere in a U.S. suburb some gangly self-styled 'outcast' teenager even gives a shit. Oh, and the Golden Raspberry Foundation: they're totally if not excited at least ready to give this thing its due chunk of time upon the occasion of release, and not much in the way of attention and energy prior to that.
Here is an exclusive message from Laurence R. Harvey to his fans at Film-Reviews.net
regarding his recently announced return in 'The Human Centipede 3 [Final Sequence], alongside director Tom Six and Dieter Laser:
I've been amazed by fan's reactions to THC2, so I hope I manage to rise to the occasion in THC3. Just listening to what Tom has said, I think people should expect the third film to have its own look and feel. And, of course, it'll be extreme, but in a different way to the last film."

We exclusively spoke with Laurence R. Harvey - star of The Human Centipede 2 [Full Sequence]. Inspired by the film, we present this interview UNCUT!
Spoiler Alert: As this interview discusses details of the plot, it is advised to watch the film before listening to this. Enjoy..
Finally, this series ends. it should have after the first film.

Can't say I'm into the movies, but I can respect a collection. Nicely done.
Tom Six talks Human Centipede 3
It'll be longer than ever before...

The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) looks set to be the most horrifying of the series, with director Tom Six revealing plans to seriously up the ante for the final outing of the franchise.
“[Human Centipede 3] will have a 500+ person pede” announced Six via his Twitter feed. “XXXXL American style!” How exactly that will work is anyone’s guess, but nobody can accuse Six of thinking small…
Six previously told The Playlist that his plans for the final film were to create a final piece in the jigsaw that would bring the trilogy together, and interconnect all three stories.
“The thing is that Part Two started with the end of Part One,” explained Six, “Part Three will start with the ending of Part Two, and I did that because in the end, all of the films can literally be connected, like a centipede. So you have one four and a half hour film, and I love that idea, even though all of the films are so different.”
Whether or not anyone could stand four and a half hours of this stuff is another matter, but at least the man has ambition. Meanwhile, original villain Dieter Laser has been officially confirmed to return for the third outing, an intriguing move given how the first Human Centipede film finished…
The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence) is expected to arrive at some point in 2013. Let the moral outrage commence!
Now that's just ridiculous.
Always has been, always will. This series is just junk.

Tom Six was all set to begin production on ‘The Human Centipede 3‘ in June with Dieter Laser, Laurence Harvey and even himself in the film, but things have come to a halt as we received an e-mail from producer Ilona Six. It appears that Dieter Laster, the star and memorable villain from the first ‘Human Centipede’ signed on for the film and liked the script but suddenly demanded script changes. Laser is now apparently refusing to play the part with a June shooting date looming ahead. The Six Entertainment Company is set to begin legal proceedings against the actor, and as many in this industry know, it can get rather messy and expensive for everyone. Below is the missive we received from the Six camp.
Six Entertainment Company Statement
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.
If Dieter signed a contract to shoot his role he's legally binded to do so and fucked otherwise.
I liked Tom Six better when he was called Uwe Boll.
I just finished watching the second film. Why is there a third? Wasn't the point of the second film (SPOILER!!!!!) that it was all Martin's imagination?
Tom always planned on making three so they all join together as one 4 and a half hour film, like one centipede themselves. http://www.facebook.com/THCIII watch some interviews with Tom on the Facebook page I have up for it. He talks about it everywhere.

Well, that killed any enthusiasm I had for watching these. That's the worst ending in the history of endings. I figured filmmakers would have figured that out by now.

^^Ah, gotcha. 'Cause that's almost always a bad ending.
That being said, even though I haven't heard very many good things about it, I still want to at least watch the first one at some point. The concept still genuinely disturbs me.
Is this even going to be relevant to anyone other than the hard-core fans of gore and shock horror? It was a massive blessing to Tom Six & co. that the censors' board tried to ban THC2 in Britain - if they hadn't done, I think it would've been released to hardly any fanfare or controversy. I hope we can all shrug and move on after this, and that Mr. Six will close down his twitter, return to his office admin job, and go back to fantasizing about being Tyler Durden.
Just realized Udo Kier was in the trailer for Rob Zombie's Werewolf Women of the SS.

Good news! (At least, “Good news” for people who like films in which folks are stitched together to form grotesque, insect-like monstrosities!) EW can exclusively reveal that Human Centipede star Dieter Laser has settled his differences with director Tom Six and will appear in the third film of the notoriously gruesome horror franchise.
Last March, it was reported that Dutch filmmaker Six, who wrote and directed both 2010′s Human Centipede (First Sequence) and the following year’s The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence), was threatening to sue Laser for breach of contract. At the time, Ilona Six — Tom Six’s sister and the co-producer of the Human Centipede series — issued a statement claiming that Laser’s ego had “grown to laughably big proportions,” that the actor had demanded “unacceptable script changes,” and that he had backed out of the project “only seven weeks prior to shooting.”
The producer has now confirmed to EW that the lawsuit has been dropped and Laser, who memorably portrayed a deranged surgeon in the first film, will play a lead role in the franchise’s third entry. Laser will not, however, play the same character he did in Human Centipede. According to the producer, Laser and Human Centipede 2 star Laurence R. Harvey are set to play a new, villainous duo “with a storyline no one will expect.” Ilona Six also announced that “a big American celebrity” is set to appear in the film, which will start shooting in the U.S. this May. Finally, the producer confirmed the third film will feature a human centipede of more than 500 people.
“I know my Human Centipede 3 will be very politically incorrect, but I didn’t want to change anything in the script,” said Tom Six in a statement. “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.”

Actor Laser was just as conciliatory in his own statement, saying, “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.”
What could possibly happen to Lindsay? Does she manage to rip her face off the asian dude's ass revealing her lipless, toothless face? Do more cops show up and help?
It's sad this is the only marketable thing that Tom Six can muster up. Cashing in on the same shock with no value film concept for the third time now.
I couldn't even stay awake through the second one earlier today.
