Above you will find the first ever image from Tom Six’s upcoming finale to his Human Centipede trilogy, The Human Centipede III: Final Sequence, and that image came courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. EW also bagged an interview with Six, who revealed plenty about the controversial new film, and you will find highlights from that interview below.
However, before recapping on what Six said, check out the latest update on the new film thanks to EW’s recent interview with star Eric Roberts.
Six has promised a 500 person centipede in his ambitious final film, and that idea is STILL hard to digest, but Roberts has all but confirmed it to be true when responding to EW’s questions.
Roberts said he was “sworn to secrecy” about his character, but he did give some details about the film: “It was far out,” said Roberts. “We have a centipede that is made of prison inmates, and they’re all hooked together. When you see this, you will never want to commit a crime and go to prison. It’s really horrible.”
He continued: “If you can imagine a hot summer day,and there are hundreds of men all bent over and they consist of the human centipede.”
Back in March, Six provided an update of the film to EW, and here are all the gory details:
“THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross,” Six explains via email, “But it will be the most controversial one politically-wise. It will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical of the three. Parts 1 and 2 have a very European feel. Part 3 is very American with the highest budget, a big movie score, widescreen, and an XXL human centipede. It’s set in an American maximum security prison in the middle of the desert. Plot-wise I won’t share details yet but if you let your imagination run wild you might get ideas.”
Eric Roberts, Robert LaSardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Bree Olson, Tom Six, Dieter Laser, and Laurence R. Harvey will all be appearing in the film.
When speaking of Roberts’ involvement, Six explained:
“Eric plays an a–hole governor. He is a great, underrated actor with a delicious, worn, malicious face. He was perfect for the part and a real gentleman. I love working with American actors and can’t wait to work with more famous American actors — if they have the b—s to work with me because some are scared to work with a sick European ‘horror’ film maker. I make ‘horrific’ movies, that’s true — but I don’t consider them as standard horror films. I think the genre with mostly masked killers or creepy ghosts on a killing spree is pretty boring and stupid.”
The villain of the first film, Dieter Laser, and the nut job from the sequel, Laurence R. Harvey, will both be returning for the sequel, but in slightly different roles, as Six explained:
“Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey play very different characters that will put Dr. Heiter and Martin in the shade,” says the director. “They are both brilliant actors with their own style. Laurence played a mute in Part 2; now he is a smart guy with a whole lot of dialog. Dieter played a cold, restrained doctor in Part 1; now he is a loud, racist, sadistic a–hole. Robert Lasardo plays a very cool, daring part, and I gave ex-porn star Bree Olson her first break as a serious actress, and she does one hell of a job. I play ‘Tom Six’ in the movie, which is an Oscar nomination performance.”
Six confirmed that The Human Centipede: Final Sequence will be the last in the trilogy (or will it?): “Well, I planned it to be a trilogy,” he says. “Three movies that can be literally connected (like a human centipede) and form one 4.5 hour movie. But never say never.”
He also confirmed that Full Sequence will definitely have a 500-man centipede, and explained how this was possible: “By having a lot of brave American extras and doing it the megalomanic way like they did inSpartacus,” Six says. “F— CGI-created things.”
