Ted Bundy Biopic ft. Metallica’s James Hetfield Gets A Trailer

The movie based on the life of famed Serial Killer Ted Bundy, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile, has just dropped its first trailer and it is as creepy as Bundy was. The film makes its debut tomorrow at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26th. Directed by Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost), he cast Metallica legend James Hetfield in the role of Officer Bob Hayward, a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975 after pulling the killer over and discovering burglary tools in his car but wisely suspecting much worse. While Hetfield has played himself in other films and television productions and participated in many documentaries, this is his first dramatic role. Joe Berlinger has been familiar with Hetfield since he directed the  Paradise Lost documentary series, co-directed the Metallica documentary film Some Kind of Monster, and co-wrote the book about the doc, Metallica: This Monster Lives. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil stars Zac Efron, as Bundy and tells the story of Bundy and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who at the time had no knowledge of the crimes. The project was announced by Voltage Pictures at Cannes 2017.
