James Hetfield Set For Ted Bundy Biopic


James Hetfield has signed on for an acting role in the upcoming biopic about serial killer Ted Bundy. The film, titled Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile, will star Zac Efron in the lead role and Hetfield will appear as a tough highway patrolman who first arrested Bundy in 1975.

Paradise Lost director Joe Berlinger is set to direct the project. It's just the most recent overlap for the pair, as Berlinger also directed Metallica's classic documentary Some Kind Of Monster:

"Having spent hundreds of hours behind the scenes with James and the rest of METALLICA, I have experienced his charisma and powerful presence close up," says Berlinger. "It seemed only natural that he would bring that same power and magnetism to a dramatic role, so when he agreed to my pitch that he be in the movie, I was thrilled."
