Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile Has A Release Date And Brand-New Trailer
We finally know when we’ll get to see Metallica frontman James Hetfield’s acting debut!
Papa Het will be appearing in the upcoming biopic of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy – Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile – and the movie will be hitting Netflix on May 3, following its January premiere at Sundance Film Festival.
The metal legend will be appearing as Officer Bob Hayward in the film, alongside Zac Efron (who plays the lead role, obviously), Lily Collins (Ted Bundy’s former girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer), Kaya Scodelario (wife Carole Ann Boone), and John Malkovich (Edward Cowart, the presiding judge at the trial).
Judging by James’ pretty snappy appearance in the trailer (check it out at 46 seconds in) it looks like he won’t have the biggest role – but needless to say he looks like a total badass anyway.
Check it out below.
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.”
