Metallica frontman James Hetfield will make his first acting experience in the upcoming Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron as the infamous serial killer.
Papa Het will play as “Officer Bob Hayward”, a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975 after pulling the killer over and discovering burglary tools in his car, but wisely suspecting much worse.
Metallica fans all know Joe Berlinger as the director and producer our very own “Some Kind of Monster” along with the late Bruce Sinofsky in 2004. There is not a release date for “Extremely Wicked…” yet, but we’ll keep you updated here.
And in the meantime, James Hetfield is back out on the road as we hit the stage in Bologna, Italy tonight.
Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile also stars Lily Collins as Bundy’s longtime girlfriend. Jim Parsons, John Malkovich, Angela Sarafyan and Haley Joel Osment also play supporting roles. The film is currently in production; no release date has been set.
