Until now, the most famous role and impress the audience is still Troy Bolton in Highschool Musical. Although in recent times, Efron has tried to change his image with serious, comedic roles in films like Bad Neighbors, Baywatch or recently High School Musical but it seems like nothing has been done yet. However, demonstrating Ted Bundy’s serial killer character could be a new milestone in the actor’s career.
The first teaser for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has been released January, giving viewers the first real glimpse of Zac Efron as Ted Bundy.
The film is premiering at Sundance and stars Zac Efron as the photogenic serial killer, who committed many unthinkable crimes during the 1970s – and possibly earlier.
Efron and Collins are joined by an intriguing array of supporting players, including John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, Haley Joel Osment, James Hetfield, Grace Victoria Cox, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Terry Kinney and Dylan Baker. Extremely Wicked is one of two Ted Bundy projects that director Joe Berlinger is coming out with this month, too, the other being his documentary series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. The 4-parter went up on Netflix just yesterday to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Bundy’s execution.
The teaser shows the couple meeting at a bar in Seattle in 1969, after which they embark upon an intense-looking relationship. Flashes of family life are then entwined with police pick ups and interviews, with Kloepfer not knowing who to believe – her doting boyfriend or the rest of the world.
Efron, as Bundy, remains adamant that he hasn’t committed any of the heinous crimes he’s accused of, responding with ‘absolutely not’ when Kloepfer asks if he has anything to do with them.
