If you were hoping our first official look at THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3 (FIINAL SEQUENCE) would be of, well, a human centipede, your hopes are going to be dashed today. However, the first still does feature two veterans of the unlikely horror franchise: Laurence R. Harvey (the villain in THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE II) and Dieter Laser (the villain in THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE).

As you can see, the two actors are looking quite different in Part 3 than they did in their previous appearances in the series. Writer-director Tom Six spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the actors and their new characters: "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."
Also an "a-hole" in the film, according to Six, is Eric Roberts, who plays the governor of whatever state the film is set in. Robert LaSardo, Bree Olsen, and Six (as himself) also star.
Some more words from Six on the new sequel:
“THC Part 3 will be totally different from Parts 1 and 2 and certainly not as gross… 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.”
Six also says that this is not necessarily the final sequence. "Well, I planned it to be a trilogy… Three movies that can be literally connected (like a human centipede) and form one 4.5 hour movie. But never say never.”
