Joining Efron in the film are Lily Collins as Kloepfer, with Kaya Scodelario as Bundy’s ex-wife Carole Anne Boone, Jim Parsons as prosecution lawyer Larry Simpson, John Malkovich as Judge Edward Cowart, and Haley Joel Osment.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is produced by Nicholas Chartier and Ara Keshishian for Voltage and Michael Costigan for Cota Films. Efron’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild produces along with Michael Simkin and Jason Barret. Werwie, Jonathan Deckter, Stephen Gates of Ellipsis Entertainment Group and Brad Kaplan of Primary Wave Entertainment are executive producing.
