A day after Netflix released their new Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes documentary sharing previously never-heard audio from notorious serial killer, the trailer for the new Ted Bundy movie has been released. The first trailer for the upcoming Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has been released.
The movie focuses on Bundy’s longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins (Phil Collins’ daughter), who couldn’t believe the accusations facing her beau that included murder, torture, decapitating young women, and necrophilia. The movie is directed by Joe Berlinger who is best known for Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills. Coincidentally, Berlinger also directed Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
Berlinger also directed 2004’s rock doc Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, which is relevant to the Ted Bundy movie because it stars rock god James Hetfield. The Metallica frontman plays Officer Bob Hayward. “Having spent hundreds of hours behind the scenes with James and the rest of Metallica, I have experienced his charisma and powerful presence close up,” Berlinger said of Hetfield.
Zac Effron plays the charming yet maniacal serial killer Ted Bundy that terrorized young women around the country in the 1970s.
The film also stars John Malkovich from Bird Box as Judge Edward D. Cowart, Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory as Florida Prosecutor Larry Simpson, Kaya Scodelario from Maze Runner as Carole Anne Boone, Westworld actress Angela Sarafyan, and Haley Joel Osment from The Sixth Sense.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile will officially premiere at the Sundance Film Festival between January 24th and February 3rd.
