See Zac Efron As Serial Killer Ted Bundy In New Trailer For Netflix Movie
Efron has come a long way since his Disney Channel days.
Netflix has released a new trailer for the Ted Bundy movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, and it provides the best look yet at Zac Efron as the notorious serial killer.
The movie follows the crimes of Bundy but told from the vantage point of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, who is played by Lily Collins (Tolkien, To the Bone).
The film also stars Kaya Scodelario, Jim Parsons, John Malkovich, and Haley Joel Osment. Metallica singer and guitarist James Hetfield also has a role; you can see him at 0:47.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is directed by Joe Berlinger. He was nominated for an Oscar for the documentary Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.
Netflix paid a reported $9 million to acquire the film, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival back in January. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Vile and Evil also expected to have a limited theatrical run.
This is the second very high-profile Ted Bundy programming on Netflix, as the streamer already has Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, which itself was created by Berlinger.
