As kids, most of us watched the Disney Channel for at least part of our childhood. Most will remember the glorious masterpiece that was the High School Musical franchise. Out of all of the stars of the franchise, the one we hear about most is Zac Efron.
He immediately became a teenage heart-throb after starring in the movies and has played many roles since- from romcom roles to several comedy roles. Efron's upcoming role will shock you and likely make you feel skeptical. But the further you read, the more you'll be able to picture it.
It's likely for his upcoming role that Efron will "pull a Dicaprio" by transforming from teenage heart-throb to well respected [finally] Oscar-winning actor.
The official name of the movie is "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile."
Ted Bundy was an infamous serial killer who committed his crimes in the 1970's in the United States. After being exposed as the culprit, Bundy was sentenced to death at his 1979 trial. Shortly before his execution 10 years later in 1989, Bundy confessed to the killings of 36 women across several states. However, experts believe that he actually had closer to 100 victims. So as you can see, he was a pretty terrifying guy.
However, the reactions to this news are all over the board. Some people are scared, excited, in disbelief, skeptical- and they're blowing up Twitter with their opinions.

I feel like Zac Efron playing Ted Bundy is just wrong. Doesn’t fit at all to me.— Melissa James (@Melissa49z) January 13, 2018
who knew there was a market for movies starring Disney channel gay icons (Ross Lynch, Zac Efron) playing serial killers (Jeffrey Dahmer, Ted Bundy)?— Matthew Silverman (@MattBSilv) January 17, 2018
oh wait, only EVERYONE! that's a big duh! https://t.co/37kmi8K2jt
So is serial killer movies the next trend? There just was a movie about Jeffrey Dahmer, there's apparently two Manson flicks coming out, and Zac Efron's apparently gonna play Ted Bundy. https://t.co/3KXxSNF0dP— Helena Aneleh (@popdramatic) January 16, 2018
I’m genuinely shocked by @ZacEfron and his versatility and time commitment as an actor. From The Greatest Showman to The Disaster Artist and now onto the Ted Bundy biopic, his projects never end.— heran mamo🎧 (@heranmamo) January 17, 2018
