Zac Efron has been tapped to play one of the world’s most notorious serial killers in his new film Extremely WIcked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Per The Hollywood Reporter’s report from Cannes, Efron has signed on to play Ted Bundy in a film about Bundy as told from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer.
Joe Berlinger is to direct a script written by Michael Wervie which I imagine will set the film moments before Bundy’s execution. This is the time where Bundy dropped his denial of the murders and revealed in gruesome detail his grisly, gut-wrenching, most heinous crimes.
No news yet regarding casting Kloepfer’s character, but principal photography is set to commence in October. It’s safe to assume they already have a few people in mind.
