The thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile starring Metallica’s James Hetfield is coming to Netflix next month.

The  Joe Berlinger-directed movie about serial killer Ted Bundy had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah earlier this year, and sees Hetfield take on the role of Officer Bob Hayward alongside Zac Efron (Bundy) and Lily Collins (Liz Kloepfer).

Netflix have secured the rights to the movie and it’ll be available to stream from May 3.

To mark the announcement, a new trailer has been released which can be watched below.

A synopsis of the film reads: “Ted is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. 

“A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out... until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. 

“Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia – and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.”

Metallica will embark on the next leg of their mammoth WorldWired tour across Europe from May 1, with shows planned throughout the summer.
