Zac Efron Will Be Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile and Ted Bundy



Ted Bundy

In what is no doubt the most WTF news of the day THR is reporting out of Cannes that Zac Efron has signed on to a new film project, and he’ll be playing one of the world’s most notorious serial killers.

Efron will star as Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which will be helmed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2).

Michael Werwie wrote the script for the project, which is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend who went years denying the accusations against Bundy, but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly murders.

Voltage is introducing the project, which paints Bundy as a portrait of evil yet simultaneously chillingly normal, to buyers in Cannes.

Nicolas Chartier and Ara Keshishian are producing via Voltage along with Michael Costigan (Ghost in the Shell, Out of the Furnace). Efron’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild banner will produce alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett.

Principal photography is set to begin October 9. Voltage will fully finance and handling international sales. CAA and UTA represent the domestic rights.
