Metallica’s James Hetfield joins Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Metallica frontman James Hetfield has become the latest addition to the cast of the upcoming Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Deadline is reporting.

The film is being directed by Joe Berlinger, who helmed the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, as well as writing the book Metallica: This Monster Lives.

Metallica’s James Hetfield Joins Ted Bundy Thriller ‘Extremely Wicked’
Metallica frontman James Hetfield will join Zac Efron and Lily Collins in the Ted Bundy thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”

Hetfield will be playing 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. It marks Hetfield’s first dramatic role in a movie playing someone other than himself.

Bundy was tried for murder in 1979. Shortly before his execution in 1989, Bundy confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’: Everything You Need to Know About Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy Biopic
Never let it be said that Zac Efron isn’t open to taking some risks. For his next project, the “High School Musical” and “Baywatch” star is moving very firmly away from comedic and family-friendly fare into darker waters. In Joe Berlinger’s upcoming biopic, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” Efron takes on the role of Ted Bundy, one of America’s most prolific and terrifying serial killers. Bundy was executed in 1989 after confessing to the murder of dozens of women, including a 12-year-old.

The new film is still in production, but it’s already garnered a heady amount of buzz, much of it thanks to Efron’s own willingness to share insider photos from the set on his social media channels, providing his followers a look inside a project that doesn’t look to be toning down the more terrifying elements of Bundy’s story. Aided by a starry cast,

Maze Runner 3 Dethrones Jumanji at the Box Office

Sony's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has dominated at the box office all month long, but, as expected, its reign came to an end this weekend, thanks to 20th Century Fox's The Maze Runner: The Death Cure. While it came in slightly under projections, the third installment in The Maze Runner trilogy based on the books by author James Dashner, took in an estimated $23.5 million, more than enough to take down Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which is still putting up strong numbers in its sixth frame in theaters, dropping just 15.9% to take in $16.4 million.

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure opened in 3,787 theaters, posting a solid $6,205 per-screen average. This movie continues the downward trend for this franchise, as the trilogy comes to an end. The Maze Runner opened in 2014, debuting with a $32.5 million opening weekend, with $102.4 million domestic and $348.3 million worldwide, from just a $34 million budget. The

Fox’s “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” is set to knock “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” out of its first place slot at the box office, with $22 million from 3,787 North American locations.
