Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile trailer reveals May premiere date
Following Netflix’s successful acquisition of the theatrical rights to Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a brand new trailer has been released for Zac Efron’s thriller biopic about the notorious killer Ted Bundy. The film is scheduled to debut on May 5 in selected theaters and exclusively on Netflix. Directed by Joe Berlinger (Conversations with a Killer), you can check out the video on the player below.
The film is told through the perspective of Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, who went years denying the accusations against Bundy but ultimately turned him in to the police. Only nearing his execution, when Bundy began talking about his extensive and heinous murders, did Kloepfer, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly crimes. 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.
