JamesEfron 750x422 - First Look: Metallica's James Hetfield and Zac Efron's Ted Bundy Face-Off

Bundy is about to Ride the Lightning. Waka, waka.

Two days ago we let you guys know that Metallica frontman James Hetfield had joined Zac Efron in director Joe Berlinger’s Ted Bundy flick Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile.

And if that news wasn’t cool enough (I think it’s cool) then today’s new pic might help you see the possibilities. Director Berlinger posted a pic of Efron and Hetfield on Instagram today and we wanted to make sure to share it ASAP.

Give it a look below and then let us know what you think of this interesting-ass casting below!

Personally, I think it Berlinger is putting together a killer cast and the thought of seeing Hetfield test out his acting chops has me ready to see this movie today!

The film is directed by Joe Berlinger from a script by Michael Werwie and stars John Malkovich, Lily Collins, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Jim Parsons, and Zac Efron as Ted Bundy.

The movie is currently shooting in Covington, Kentucky.


Told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend who went years denying the accusations against Bundy, but ultimately turned him into 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.
