I would say vice grips.

That may damage the lens, however.

Did you install the filter and was it hard to turn?

It could be cross threaded.

One of those rubber jar openers. Some also say to use the bottom of a mouse pad, it's often a very 'grippy' rubber sponge material. Put a fair amount of force on the lens, face down on the mouse pad, turn... Or clamp the filter in a bench vise if you get desperate enough, obviously don't overdo it on that either.

I kept having this problem with the DA 12-24 and a 77mm polarizing filter. The filter had grooves on the outside of the ring so I used a coin that also had grooves as a sort of toothwheel to get it open
