James Hetfield is set to star in a new film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, about notorious serial killer Ted Bundy
Zac Efron will reportedly star as Bundy, while Hetfield will be playing the role of Officer Bob Hayward. Hayward was a Utah highway patrolman who arrested in Bundy in 1975 after pulling him over and discovering burglary tools in his car.
This will be Hetfield’s first dramatic role playing a character. The film’s director Joe Berlinger is responsible for recruiting James because they know each other from working on the Metallica documentary Some Kind of Monster, which Berlinger co-directed.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile is currently in production.
