To say that Zac Efron’s next role will be a departure from the usual shirtless and brainless comedies we’re used to seeing the hunky actor in would be a massive understatement.

We’ve already got our first look at the Baywatch star inhabiting the skin of serial killer Ted Bundy for the upcoming Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, but that doesn’t make the correlation between the two any easier to stomach.

Directed by Joe Berlinger, who most notably co-helmed Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory and received an Oscar nomination for his efforts, Extremely Wicked has compiled quite an ensemble apart from Efron, including John Malkovich, Lily Collins, and Jim Parsons. Told from the point-of-view of Bundy’s then-girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Collins), the picture will span the entirety of the serial killer’s spree, promising an in-depth look at him and the crimes he committed.

Production wrapped on the pic last month and while the film is still without a release date, Efron recently sat down with Entertainment Tonight to discuss his process, while also sharing the below video of him getting into character.

Speaking about what attracted him to the script, the actor said:

“It’s very interesting. I think the movie itself is really deep. It doesn’t really glorify Ted Bundy. He wasn’t a person to be glorified.  It was fun to go and experiment in that realm of reality. I didn’t go full method and I didn’t have to like do any weird stuff to anybody to get into character.”

Based on an original screenplay by Michael Werewie that won the Nicholl Fellowship prize and was featured on the Black List, Efron went on to further praise the film’s complexity.

“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.”

While we’re forced to wait and see whether Efron’s venture into uncharted territory with Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile successfully reinvents his career, there’s no harm in temporarily letting the hype get the better of us, right?

Zac Efron To Star As Ted Bundy in Extremely wicked

Well, this is certainly some odd casting news.

Deadline is reporting tonight that the upcoming Ted Bundy movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile has recruited Metallica frontman James Hetfield into its ranks. From what we understand, he’ll portray Officer Bob Hayward, who was the first cop to ever arrest Bundy. Though the singer’s appeared in various films and TV series over the years, he’s only shown up as himself, so this will be his first true acting role.

Hetfield joins a cast that already includes Zac Efron as the iconic serial killer, along with Lilly Collins, Jim Parsons and John Malkovich, among others. There’s no word yet on how big of a part Hayward plays in the story, but we’re certainly excited to see the music legend snagging a role here and look forward to hearing more about his involvement.

Joe Berlinger’s psychological thriller is based on the Black List script from Michael Werwie and is now in production, as evidenced by a recent slew of set photos. We don’t know too much about it just yet, but it’s been described as being in the vein of Nightcrawler and The Jinx, with the story being told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s girlfriend who eventually turned him into the police.

That’ll present an interesting point of view for us to explore Ted from and we’re excited to see how it all turns out in the end. Speaking of which, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile doesn’t have a release date to call its own just yet, but with things heating up, we imagine that’ll change quite soon. And when it does, we’ll be sure to let you know.
