Zac Efron on Ted Bundy

When Zac Efron first heard about a chance to play "Ted Bundy, he was wary". This was a few years before he signed on for the new film about the serial killer, and it involved a different script. “I didn’t want to jump in too early to what could have potentially been the wrong version of this movie,” he says. “I was very hesitant to go into a darker genre in what could be perceived as an effort to change my perceived image.” The script for his new film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile felt, to him, like the right version: “A movie that could have been procedural and boring now explores a brand-new perspective, and is told through the eyes of Liz, the girl closest to Ted.”

Zac Efron is playing Ted Bundy, one of the most violent misogynists in recorded history, who raped, murdered and sometimes decapitated women; at his 1979 trial in Florida, key evidence included a deep bite mark on a woman’s buttocks. He was convicted at that trial of two murders and three attempted murders, and later that year was given another death sentence for the killing of 12-year-old Kimberly Leach. Before his execution in 1989, he admitted to murdering 30 women, and it’s been suggested that he may have killed as many as 100. 

When Is Netflix's Ted Bundy Movie Coming Out?

Netflix bought the rights to the Ted Bundy biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, reportedly for a whopping $9 million. The trailer that came out earlier this year was also deeply unsettling, with the former heartthrob channeling the remorseless sociopath with absolutely meticulous precision. It's unclear whether Netflix is trying to distance itself from its own Ted Bundy documentary, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. For whatever reason, Netflix hadn't officially set a release date yet (as of 3/29/19), although rumor is it'll get a theatrical run at some point. So in essence, we don't totally know yet.
