Actress Lily Collins (The Dig) is set to star as Elizabeth Kloepfer, Bundy’s real-life ex-girlfriend whose perspective the film will be told from.
We reported a few days ago that Acadamy Award nominee John Malkovich has joined the cast and will play the role of Judge Edward Cowart. Malkovich has starred in many films including Bullet Head, Deepwater Horizon, Red, Shadow of the Vampire, Con Air, and Being John Malkovich, just to name a few.
While Efron has starred in a lot of comedies like Baywatch, Dirty Grandpa (which hilarious), Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Neighbors, and Neighbors 2, it appears the former Disney star is looking for a more serious role. And let’s face it, he and Bundy do have a lot in common in the looks department.
