With Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy movie continuing to flesh-out its cast, the film has moved to bring in Angela Sarafyan.
As per Deadline, the Westworld actress will play Joanna in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. That character is described as a pal of Lily Collins’ Elizabeth who “acts as a support system for Elizabeth and is the reason she finally questions Bundy’s intentions.”
With Efron playing the infamous Bundy in the upcoming indie effort, the film will actually be told from the point of view of Elizabeth Kloepfer; the partner of Bundy who spent years denying any and all of the accusations made against her boyfriend. Eventually, she’d turn him in to the police, and it would only be as Bundy’s execution loomed large that she and the rest of the world found out the true grim details of just how much misery and torment he caused to so many. As well as Efron, Collins and Sarafyan on board, John Malkovich is also signed on to play Edward Cowart, the Judge tasked with handling the case back in 1979.
Metallica: Some Kind of Monster’s Joe Berlinger is on directing duties, with Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile yet to be given a set release date.
