Zac Efron as serial killer Ted Bundy: See the first picture

Cape Town - Zac Efron is now filming his latest movie, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

Efron took to Instagram today to tease his transformation into the notorious serial killer who committed 36 murders between 1974 and 1978.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile will be produced by Nicholas Chartier and Ara Keshishian for Voltage and Michael Costigan for Cota Films. Efron may already possess the murderer's good looks and charm, but Browne claims the true test will be if Efron can capture Bundy's "essence of evilness".

Bundy chose to represent himself at the trial, which was broadcast on national television, and appeared to develop something of a rapport with the judge.

The film is told from the perspective of Bundy's longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, played by Lily Collins, who denied the allegations against Bundy for years. Kloepfer eventually turned Bundy in after denying the horrific accusations lodged against him. She recently starred in Okja on Netflix.

The project will be helmed by Oscar-nominated director Joe Berlinger best known for his documentaries Paradise Lost trilogy and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
