Watch “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile” Ted Bunny story Trailer
Have you seen the trailer for “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile” yet? It’s the story of the relationship between serial killer Ted Bundy & his longtime girlfriend. And, it’s the acting debut of Metallica singer James Hetfield!
Zac Efron plays Bundy, while Lily Collins plays his girlfriend (who at the time had no knowledge of the crimes).
Hetfield plays officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first to arrest Bundy (back in 1975) after pulling him over and finding burglary tools in his car but suspected more.
Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (“Paradise Lost” “Metallica: This Monster Lives”) directed the movie and will be released on Netflix on May 3rd ’19.
“It’s very interesting. I think the movie itself is really deep,” said Efron to ET in March 2018. “It doesn’t really glorify Ted Bundy. He wasn’t a person to be glorified. It simply tells a story and sort of how the world was able to be charmed over by this guy who was notoriously evil and the vexing position that so many people were put in, the world was put in.”
You’ll remember that this movie was announced by Voltage Pictures at Cannes 2017.
