Zac Efron is playing Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which will premiere this weekend at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Efron is known for his musical work over the years, such as the High School Musical series, Hairspray, and The Greatest Showman. He also has a fair amount of comedy work under his belt. Movies like Neighbors, Dirty Grandpa, and Baywatch showed us that Efron is talented in multiple genres. But his new role as notorious serial killer Bundy is unlike anything we have ever seen from him before.

The movie is told from the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, which ensures viewers will get interesting insight into Bundy’s personal life, outside of his notoriety as a killer. The announcement of the movie’s premiere follows Netflix’s release of Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, which began streaming on January 24th. Both works were directed by Joe Berlinger.
