Metallica frontman James Hetfield will have a role in the forthcoming movie ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile‘. Joe Berlinger, who also co-directed the Metallica documentary ‘Metallica: Some Kind of Monster‘, is helming the production. It stars Zac Efron as serial killer Ted Bundy and Lily Collins as his girlfriend Elizabeth Kleopfer. Bundy was executed in the electric chair at Florida State Prison on January 24, 1989, having confessed to dozens of murders, rapes and kidnappings.

Hetfield will enact Officer Bob Hayward. The following description was offered of Hayward‘s character: “He's a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975 after pulling the killer over and discovering burglary tools in his car but wisely suspecting much worse.”

Comments Berlinger of having James Hetfield onboard:

"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."
