Zac Efron Goes Dark In His New Role

So we all, or at least should, know that Zac Efron has starred as High School Musical’s Troy Bolton and Baywatch’s Matt Brody. Well, now he takes his career to the dark side as he becomes the sick and twisted Ted Bundy in the upcoming thriller ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile’,  directed by Joe Berlinger.

Writer, Michael Werwie, wanted to approach this from Elizabeth Kloepfer’s (Bundy’s long-time girlfriend) point of view, during the years Bundy was hiding his crimes from her to the time she finally reported him to the authorities. Kloepfer is to be played by Lily Collins, who starred in ‘The Blind Side’ (2009). John Malcovich is set to play Judge Edward Cowart, the judge who presided over Bundy’s trial and sentenced him to death in 1979.

**Cast also includes Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory), Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), Terry Kinney (Law & Order), and Dylan Baker (Trick ‘r Treat).
