‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’: First Look at Zac Efron as Ted Bundy

It’s safe to say that Zac Efron has left his Disney days behind him in a big way. In the last two years he has been in films such as Dirty Grandpa, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates and the film adaptation of Baywatch, but he has moved on to much more sinister pastures with his role as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

They began filming last year and the project is headed by Oscar-nominated director, Joe Berlinger (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2), and was written by Michael Werwie (A Rose Reborn).

The film will be told from the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (played by Lily Collins), who lived in denial of his atrocities for years before ultimately turning him over to police.

Yesterday, Efron took to Twitter to give the world a sneak peak of himself as Ted Bundy with this post:

A slightly closer look at the two side by side:

After his arrest, Bundy confessed to 30 murders in seven states between 1974 and 1978. He took the real number of victims he claimed to the grave with him, but the number is believed to be much higher.

Visually, it appears Efron has what it takes to portray Bundy; only time will tell if he can truly channel one of America’s most notorious madmen.
