Zac Efron posted a photo of himself Thursday on Instagram from his new movie, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” — as Ted Bundy.But he still looks like … Zac Efron. That’s because Hollywood suddenly seems to think serial killers — especially real ones — are smoking hot.
Look at Darren Criss, who won an Emmy for playing Andrew Cunanan in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” or cute singer Ross Lynch as Jeffrey Dahmer in “My Friend Dahmer.” Whatever happened to Hannibal Lecter and Sweeney freakin’ Todd?
Anyway, the 31-year-old actor’s Bundy biopic is set to premiere in January at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
Lily Collins, 29, co-stars as Bundy’s girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who struggled to accept the reality of her handsome boyfriend’s personality. Kaya Scodelario, 26, plays Bundy’s wife, Carole Ann Boone, a twice-divorced mother of two who allegedly assisted in Bundy’s 1977 escape from prison.
