The upcoming Ted Bundy movie Extraordinarily Depraved, Shockingly Evil and Vile starring Zac Efron, continues to assemble a different array of expertise for what’s shaping as much as be a must-see tackle the serial killer. Now, the Voltage Photos manufacturing has simply added some critically rocking expertise in Metallica entrance man James Hetfield. The lead vocalist and co-founder of the legendary metallic band joins the movie not in any musical capability, however in a dramatic position.
In response to Deadline, James Hetfield will play Utah freeway patrolman Officer Bob Hayward within the movie. The character is described as a no-nonsense veteran of the drive. Officer Hayward was the primary regulation enforcement officer to arrest Ted Bundy when, in 1975, he pulled Bundy over and found housebreaking instruments in his automobile. As for James Hetfield, the person has been part of Metallica, and thus a well-known entertainer for many years. Nonetheless, he hasn’t actually forayed into performing, as so many different musicians do (and vice versa), till now. James Hetfield does have credit for offering his voice to the Skylanders Academy online game and he has performed himself in varied initiatives, however this can be his first dramatic position the place he’ll play a special character.
Whereas this would possibly look like an out-of-left-field alternative, there’s truly already a connection between James Hetfield and Extraordinarily Depraved, Shockingly Evil and Vile director, Joe Berlinger. The Oscar-nominated director, who has a ton of documentary credit to his title, directed and produced the Metallica: Some Kind of Monster documentary together with Bruce Sinofsky. Following his expertise engaged on the rock doc and following the band, Joe Berlinger co-authored a guide titled Metallica: This Monster Lives. So, clearly the director has a working relationship with the band and noticed one thing in James Hetfield that makes him proper for the position of Bob Hayward. The director truly pitched James Hetfield to be within the film and feels that he can deliver his pure charisma and magnetism to the dramatic position.
Whereas I think about this won’t be an enormous position within the movie, which can be advised from the perspective of Ted Bundy’s girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, it’s a pivotal one. Officer Bob Hayward, who died final yr, was virtually off obligation when he took a unsuitable flip and ended up stoppingTed Bundy. Good old style policeman’s instinct gave him a funny feeling about Bundy and the remainder, as they are saying, is historical past. This scene needs to be dripping with pressure and will probably be enjoyable to see what James Hetfield brings to the position.
James Hetfield joins a really attention-grabbing forged, which incorporates Lily Collins as Elizabeth Kloepfer in addition to Haley Joel Osment, Kaya Scodelario, Jim Parsons and John Malkovich. Extraordinarily Depraved, Shockingly Evil and Vile doesn’t at present have a launch date.
