Filming has begun for Joe Belinger’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. We reported back in May that Zac Efron had signed on to star in the film as notorious serial killer Ted Bundy and last week we showed you the first image. Now, we have more casting news to share.
Deadline is reporting that Grace Victoria Cox has joined the cast. The ‘Twin Peaks’ actress will be playing the role of Carol Daronch, a young woman who survived an encounter with Bundy and later IDs him in court.
Told from the perspective of Bundy’s ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), the film covers a several year span of their relationship while Bundy was hiding stalking and killing young women. Angela Sarafyan will co-star as Joanna, Elizabeth’s close friend. Oscar nominee John Malkovich is set to play Edward Cowart, the judge who presided over the killer’s trial and sentencing. Michael Werwie penned the screenplay which took home the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship first place prize.
Bundy was executed in the electric chair on January 4, 1989, but shortly before he was executed he confessed to 30 murders committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978. The truth is no one will ever know the true numbers of lives that he ended. Besides being a serial killer, he was a rapist, burglar, and necrophile.
