We know Zac Efron as a sweet boy from comedies or romantic flicks like The High School Musical. But can you imagine him in the role of a brutal maniac? The serial killer who murdered girls is something strange for him somehow, but let's see if it’s Efron’s piece of cake.
His haircut has changed as well as his theatrical character. No more sugary appearance and behavior. His role of Ted Bundy in the upcoming film "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" will undoubtedly need something more brutal, something completely different, than he used to be. The film is based on true events, which happened in some states of the USA at the 70-s. Real Ted Bundy was electrocuted in 1989. The exact number of his victims has not been established yet.
This week, BuzzFeed published an interview of Zak with and his The Greatest Showman costar Zendaya, where she asked actor questions about his most uncomfortable experience on the set and the most difficult role that he ever played.He responded that Ted Bundy is gonna be a challenge, but it's also must be fun. Actor is super stoked about that.
The script, written by Michael Verde, will tell the story of the rapist on behalf of his longtime friend Elizabeth Klopfer, who for many years denied his involvement in the crimes, but eventually, gave testimony against him. The director will be Joe Berlinger, who made such films as Paradise Lost and Witch from Blair 2. Production of the movie with the working title "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile" will be taken by Voltage Pictures studio, it is planned to start filming in October.
Well, let's see if Efron can show himself on the other side. Finally, the actor has the opportunity to demonstrate his talent’s range and depth to destroy any stigma.
