Zac Efron To Play Serial Killer Ted Bundy In New Film

Zac Efron won't just be killing us with his good looks in his next film role. The Baywatch star has signed on to portray serial killer Ted Bundy!

Variety reports:

Zac Efron has come on board to star as serial killer Ted Bundy in the independent drama “Extremely WickedShockingly Evil and Vile.”

Voltage Pictures and Michael Costigan’s Cota Films are producing with Joe Berlinger directing. Michael Werwie wrote the original screenplay, which won the Nicholl Fellowship first prize and was on the Black List.

The film is set to commence principal photography on Oct. 9...

The project follows the dysfunctional relationship between Bundy and his long-time girlfriend Liz. Bundy, a killer and rapist of young girls and women who was notoriously charming, was executed in Florida in 1989.

Producer Nicholas Chartier tells Variety:

“I have been trying to work with Zac Efron for a long time,” Chartier said. “From his dramatic turn in ‘Paperboy’  to his hilarious performance in ‘Neighbors,’ he continues to impress audiences and critics alike with his extraordinary versatility and range. We couldn’t be more excited to see him in this amazing role.”

I'm not a jealous little man, Fireblazes. I simply don't think he's anything more than a nice body. I don't get why he has a career. There are a lot of people like him, whose name on the cast list tells me it's a movie I can avoid.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion and that includes you and me. Why would I be jealous of him?  I'd consider seeing Baywatch for The Rock and if it was a silly comedy like 21 Jump Street was.
