(Newser) Notoriously attractive serial killer Ted Bundy will be played by notoriously attractive former Disney star Zac Efron in a new movie. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile tells Bundy's story from the point of view of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, who ultimately turned Bundy in to the police. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film, directed by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger, shows how Bundy was "evil yet simultaneously chillingly normal." Reactions on Twitter are mixed, with opinions ranging from "brilliant move" to "vanilla and boring." (Read more Zac Efron stories.)
