Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile is a pretty highly anticipated upcoming movie featuring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, and has already been given pretty positive reviews, so it should come as no surprise that companies were eager to buy the picture after it hit Sundance. Well, that deal has happened, and it also should come as no surprise who bought the film.
Netflix is closing in on a deal for U.S. and some international rights to the Zac Efron-as-serial-killer-Ted Bundy drama Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. A source pegged the deal at a staggering $9 million.
It also adds:
The film sparked a late-fest bidding war that also involved STX and Lionsgate. Netflix will give the film an awards season theatrical run for star Efron sometime in the fall.

It looks like Netflix has some pretty big plans for the movie, and it should do well, considering their The Ted Bundy Tapes is already doing well on the platform.
After the massive success of Bird Box, you should probably expect the same type of buzz for this movie, or even more. Ted Bundy is a popular subject, and the movie has already generated significant buzz.
We’ll let you know when Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile gets an official release date, but we’re guessing that it won’t be long at all before we get one.
