Zac Efron has moved on from his High School Musical days as he is set to play Ted Bundy one of the most notorious serial killers in American history responsible for multiple kidnappings, rape, burglary and necrophilia. Efron wasn’t sure if he could portray Ted Bundy in “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” a drama that premieres at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

“Initially, I had reservations about playing a serial killer,” Efron tells Variety in his first interview about the project. “I’ve seen people make horror films like this before, and it seems like an aggressive play to separate yourself from a perceived image. And it’s got a lot of killing and hacking and slashing. I think I’ve seen that before too many times.”

His latest film is one of the most anticipated titles out of this year’s Sundance is a character study about Bundy’s double life as a serial killer. There’s almost no violence or gore depicted throughout the film.

Most of the story is told through the viewpoint of Bundy’s girlfriend, Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins), who wants to believe that he’s innocent, regardless of the fact that police officers suspect he’s connected to the disappearance of multiple victims. Before he was executed in a Florida prison in 1989, Bundy confessed to murdering more than 30 women.
