Zac Efron To Play Serial Killer Ted Bundy
Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron will break his chocolate boy image soon. The actor is all set to star as Ted Bundy - who was an American serial killer, kidnapper, rapist, burglar, and necrophile who assaulted and murdered numerous young women and girls - in an upcoming film. Titled ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’, the flick will be helmed by Oscar-nominated documentary director Joe Berlinger.
The film will be jointly bankrolled by Nicolas Chartier and Ara Keshishian’s Voltage Pictures, and Michael Costigan’s Cota Films. Talking about working with Efron, Chartier said, “I have been trying to work with Zac Efron for a long time. From his dramatic turn in Paperboy to his hilarious performance in Neighbors, he continues to impress audiences and critics alike with his extraordinary versatility and range. We couldn’t be more excited to see him in this amazing role”.
The movie is set to commence principal photography on October 9. The script for the project, which was first announced in 2014 at the Cannes Film Festival, has been penned by Michael Werwie. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be told from the perspective of Bundy's longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer.
