Joe Berlinger will direct the film, which will be told from the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer.
Ahead of the release of his latest film Baywatch, Zac Efron has signed on to a new film project, and he'll be playing one of the world's most notorious serial killers.

Efron will star as Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which will be helmed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory).

Will be interesting to see Efron in a more serious role. Has he done anything but comedies before (other than High School Musical)?

So much drama this week about Ted Bundy being hot and charismatic. Netflix has a new series about him and then the Efron movie.

Bundy couldn't have gotten away with what he did it he wasn't friendly and good looking. So I think these shows should show him as ugly? No. Should people online say they would sleep with him? No

Netflix to Acquire Zac Efron Ted Bundy Movie ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’
I believe both Ted Bundy Tapes and Extremely Wicked are from the same guy, so makes sense Netflix wanted to have both to drive traffic.

That's a big get by netflix. Really creating a monopoly on the Ted Bundy material. I would like to see the movie and series, but know I'll probably only end up seeing the movie

Erin has been watching the series so I've seen a little bit of it just in the background. It's so strange to hear him on the tapes because of how casual and matter-of-fact he is about all the grisly things he did.

We studied him in HS in Criminal Justice (one of my favorite electives). I remembered part of his story being how he was so charismatic and attractive and how he went for beautiful college girls. I forgot how he escaped several times. Such a crazy case, I'm excited to see the movie!
