Serial Killer Movie Starring Metallica’s James Hetfield Is Coming to Netflix
The Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile movie about serial killer Ted Bundy premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It stars Metallica's James Hetfield and has just been confirmed for a May 3 release on Netflix.
Hetfield plays the role of Officer Bob Hayward, the officer who first arrested Bundy as a Utah highway patrolman in 1975. The Metallica frontman can be seen very briefly in the new two-and-a-half-minute trailer above, which gives an overarching view of the movie, which focuses on Bundy's life and crimes.
Joe Berlinger, co-director of the 2004 Metallica documentary, Some Kind of Monster, served as the director of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
"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," said Berlinger in a previous statement. "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."
