Zac Efron is set to star as serial killer Ted Bundy in the independent drama “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”
The project follows the dysfunctional relationship between Bundy and his long-time girlfriend Liz. Bundy, a killer and rapist of young girls and women who was notoriously charming, was executed in Florida in 1989. This will be a very different role for the young actor.
Efron will be seen next in “Baywatch” opposite Dwayne Johnson. He’s also starring in “The Greatest Showman” with Hugh Jackman and Michelle Williams.
