We Can’t Wait!
James Hetfield is about to make his debut on the big screen as part of the upcoming biopic of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy titled “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile”. He will star alongside Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Jim Parsons and John Malkovich.
He will play the role of “no-nonsense” Utah highway patrol Officer Bob Hayward who was the first to arrest Ted Bundy in 1975 after pulling him over on the highway and therefore discovering burglary tools. This isn’t the first time Hetfield gets to work with director Joe Berlinger since the latter directed and co-produced the documentary “Metallica: 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. 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.” – Joe Berlinger
The film is currently in production and there’s no release date yet. We can’t wait to see James Hetfield on the big screen!
