Serial Killer Movie Starring James Hetfield To Premiere At Sundance Film Festival

Next month, Metallica's James Hetfield will make his big screen debut in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile – the upcoming movie about serial killer Ted Bundy.

The movie, which also stars Zac Efron and Lily Collins, will receive its worldwide premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, taking place in Utah between January 24 and February 3.

No official trailers have been released as of yet, but Metallica did post a still on Instagram of James Hetfield in full acting mode as Officer Bob Hayward.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile details the story of Ted Bundy (Zac Efron) and his relationship with Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins).

A synopsis of the movie reads: “Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man.

“A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out... until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered.

“Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia – and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.”

Metallica embark on a stadium tour of Europe later this year.
