Metallica’s James Hetfield landed a role in the new film ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile’ about serial killer Ted Bundy. The film is currently in production with Zac Efron in the Bundy role. Hetfield plays Officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol man who pulled Bundy over in 1975 on suspicion of burglary, but soon figures out there is more to the story.
The film is directed by Joe Berlinger who co-directed and co-produced the Metallica documentary ‘Some Kind of Monster’ in 2004.
John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, Haley Joel Osment also star in the film.
Bundy attacked numerous women and girls in the seventies and was executed via the electric chair in 1989.
