Metallica’s frontman James Hetfield joined the cast of the upcoming film "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile" about the serial killer Ted Bundy. The movie is directed by Joe Berlinger, who has previously worked on Metallica’s documentary "Some Kind of Monster" (2004).
"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile" focuses on the relationship between Ted Bundy, played by Zac Efron ("Baywatch"), and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins ("The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones"), who at the time had no knowledge of Bundy's crimes. Hetfield will play officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975. Also the film features actors John Malkovich ("Being John Malkovich"), Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"), Haley Joel Osment ("The Sixth Sense"), Kaya Scodelario ("Pirates of the Caribbean 5"), Terry Kinney ("Black Box"), and Dylan Baker (films "Spider-Man 2", "3").
The first photo of Hetfield on the set of "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile" has been revealed and can be seen below.
A release date and distributor for the film have yet to be announced.
