The highly anticipated Ted Bundy biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has the kind of all star cast that practically guarantees an impressive film. From Metallica frontman James Hetfield to Hollywood veteran John Malkovich, with Lily Collins as the narrative voice, there is already a lot to look forward.
Zac Efron, who will be protraying the murderer and necrophile himself, clearly knows how to keep the hype high. Since filming began, he has been dropping behind-the-scenes glimpses of how the film is developing on social media.
He revealed the first image of himself as Bundy. Not long afterwards, he shared a chiling picture of himself with Lily Collins at the beginning of the relationship between Bundy and Elizabeth Kloepfer, the long-term girlfriend who was crucial in his eventual arrest.
He has now taken again to Instagram with not just one more cheeky glimpse into how the project is progressing, but two.
He first dropped a picture of Kaya Scodelario as Carol Anne Boone, the woman that Bundy married while he was on death row.
During his incarceration, Boone was convinced of Bundy’s innocence and testified as a character witness on multiple occasions. She moved to Florida with her two children to be nearer to him. She smuggled cash into the prison so that he could use it to start a new life if any of his escape plans ever succeeded.
They were married at the trial itself. Bundy proposed in front of the court and the judge, taking advantage of an obscure Florida make marriage declared in in such a way to be legally binding.
Efron also released a photo of himself and Jim Parsons, portraying Larry Simpson, the Lead Prosecutor in Bundy’s trial. While Simpson isn’t anywhere near as well known as the notorious killer, it was his legal expertise that finally put Bundy behind bars.
