Problems for The Human Centipede 3 (thank God)

Apparently the "massive ego" of Dieter Laser (aka, the doctor from the first Human Centipede film) is causing problems for the third installment, The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence. According to producer Ilona Six, Laser agreed to the third film and is now demanding unacceptable script changes. As a result Laser has refused to play the part with only 7 weeks until principal photography. Director Tom Six is now planning to sue Dieter Laser and says he will just postpone production until later this year if necessary.

However... Dieter Laser has since released a statement in regards to the legal issue Tom Six has chosen to create:
"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.”

I personally hope that this permanently stalls production and potentially cancels it because The Human Centipede movies are complete pieces of shit, no pun intended.  Tom Six needs a padded room and a therapist as far as I'm concerned.
