A new trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins, has just been released and along with the trailer we got the news that the movie will debut on Netflix on May 3rd! You can watch the trailer below.
It was announced yesterday by The Hollywood Reporter that Netflix has acquired rights for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile – The movie about Ted Bundy, starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins! You can read the full report below.
Though Sundance officially wrapped Sunday, the dealmaking continues: Netflix is closing in on a deal for U.S. and some international rights to the to the drama Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy. A source pegged the deal at a staggering $9 million.
Directed by Joe Berlinger — the Oscar-nominated helmer behind Paradise Lost, who excels in the true-crime genre — the film chronicles the crimes of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years. Lily Collins plays Kloepfer, while Haley Joel Osment, Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich, Jim Parsons and Angela Sarafyan round out the cast.
Extremely Wicked sparked a late-fest bidding war that also involved STX and Lionsgate. Netflix will give the pic an awards-season theatrical run in the fall.
The Michael Werwie-penned film made its world premiere Jan. 26 at the Eccles Theatre in Park City and drew raves. In his review of the movie, The Hollywood Reporter‘s Todd McCarthy wrote, “Efron flies higher than ever here, investing his character with an illusory confidence that’s entertaining even when the character and legal charges fully live up to the film’s title.” Netflix proved to be a natural fit, given that Berlinger already has the hit docuseries Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes with the streamer that covers the same subject.
The deal marks the first narrative feature buy for Netflix at this year’s Sundance market. The streaming giant also bought docs like the Participant Media-backed American Factory and the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaign chronicle Knock Down the House.
Extremely Wicked was produced by Nicolas Chartier, Michael Costigan, Ara Keshishian and Michael Simkin. Executive producers included Jason Barrett, Berlinger, Jonathan Deckter and Michael Werwie.

Hey Lilyians! Variety has announced that Lily has joined the Ted Bundy Biopic, titled Extremely Wicked. She will be playing Bundy’s (played by Zac Efron) ex-girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfe. Production is set to begin on January 10.
Lily Collins will star opposite Zac Efron as the former girlfriend of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy in the thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”
Voltage is handling sales at the American Film Market, which opens Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif.
The film is told from the point of view of Elizabeth Kloepfer during the multi-year period that Bundy hid his murder spree from his live-in lover, played by Collins.
Collins recently starred in “To the Bone” and “Okja,” and was also nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress (comedy) for her starring role in “Rules Don’t Apply.” She will star as Edith Bratt in Dome Karukoski’s “Tolkien.”
Efron came aboard the Voltage Pictures project at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Bundy was executed in 1989. Shortly before his execution, he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.
Joe Berlinger will direct “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.” The original screenplay, written by Michael Werwie, won the Nicholl Fellowship first prize and was featured on the Black List.
“Lily has very quickly distinguished herself as a major talent in a number of diverse roles in recent years,” said Berlinger. “I am really excited about taking Zac and this hugely talented actress to some dark but very human places they may not yet have explored.”
Efron was most recently seen in “Baywatch” and will be appearing in the upcoming James Franco comedy “The Disaster Artist.”
Voltage Pictures and Cota Entertainment are producing, alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett of Efron’s Ninjas Runnin Wild. Ara Keshishian, Nicolas Chartier, and Michael Costigan will be producing via Voltage and Cota. Voltage is fully financing with Jonathan Deckter as an executive producer. Production is set to begin on Jan. 10.
