"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."
Director Tom Six replied to this on his Twitter with "BREAKING NEWS: MY COMPANY WILL SUE ACTOR DIETER LASER!!! WORDWIDE PRESS RELEASE WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY" Is this too far? I mean he'll have to re-write his full script and his plan for the perfect ending to the trilogy will not be able to happen, but he didn't listen to Dieter's suggestions. So who is actually in the wrong here? Guess we'll find out later in the press release. Unless this is a publicity stunt, I can imagine Tom doing something like that...
UPDATE; Producer and Sister of Tom, Illona Six just realised a short statement about what is going on; "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."
