Kiss Me First marks return to TV for Skins co-creator Bryan Elsley

Writer of cult TV show keeps the teenage connection with adaptation of Lottie Moggach’s young adult sci-fi novel

The hit TV show Skins offered what some viewers felt was a sordid look at the world of teen drinking, eating disorders, drugs, divorcing parents and clubbing. Yet it paved the way to A-list film stardom for a string of young actors, from Oscar nominees Daniel Kaluuya and Dev Patel, to the acclaimed Jack O’Connell, Nicholas Hoult, and Kaya Scodelario, who went on to star in the Maze Runner and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises.

The controversial and cult drama series, which was set in Bristol and ran on E4 between 2007 and 2013, nurtured such a long list of screen talent it scarcely looks credible now. Five years on, Bryan Elsley, the Scottish writer behind Skins, is about to unveil his next show, a big-budget thriller called Kiss Me First that

Zac Efron Shares New Images From His Ted Bundy Biopic ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile’
Zac Efron playing a serial killer may at first seem an odd choice if you don’t know much about the murderer in question: Ted Bundy, who was regarded as good-looking and charismatic — traits he used to lure in his 30-plus female victims. Efron stars in the appropriately named “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile,” and just shared new photos from the set. Avail yourself of them below.

Lily Collins, John Malkovich, Haley Joel Osment, Terry Kinney, Jim Parsons, Kaya Scodelario, and Metallica’s James Hetfield (yes, really) co-star in the film, which is being directed by Joe Berlinger. Best known for his documentaries — including and especially the essential “Paradise Lost” trilogy — Berlinger also helmed the ill-fated “Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.”

“Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile,” whose attention-grabbing title is lifted directly from one of Bundy’s guilty verdicts, has yet to receive a release date.

Extravagantly titled with the headline-killer Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile, the Bundy biopic stars Efron as the murderer, rapist and necrophile, who has become a bit of a national obsession since his 1976 trial and subsequent execution.

Metallica’s James Hetfield joins Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Metallica frontman James Hetfield has become the latest addition to the cast of the upcoming Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Deadline is reporting.

The film is being directed by Joe Berlinger, who helmed the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster, as well as writing the book Metallica: This Monster Lives. It will mark Hetfield’s first dramatic role where he plays someone other than himself, as he takes on the role of Officer Bob Hayward, a Utah highway patrol veteran who became the first law enforcement officer to arrest the notorious serial killer in 1975.

“Having spent hundreds of hours behind the scenes with James and the rest of Metallica, I have experienced his charisma and powerful presence close up,” says director Joe Berlinger in a statement. “It seemed only natural that he would bring that same power and magnetism to a dramatic role, so when he

Metallica’s James Hetfield Joins Ted Bundy Thriller ‘Extremely Wicked’
Metallica frontman James Hetfield will join Zac Efron and Lily Collins in the Ted Bundy thriller “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”

The film, which is currently in production, centers on the relationship between Bundy, played by Efron, and his longtime girlfriend, portrayed by Collins, who at the time, had no knowledge of the crimes.

Hetfield will be playing Officer Bob Hayward, a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975 after pulling the killer over and discovering burglary tools in his car, but wisely suspecting much worse. It marks Hetfield’s first dramatic role in a movie playing someone other than himself.

Bundy was tried for murder in 1979. Shortly before his execution in 1989, Bundy confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’: Everything You Need to Know About Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy Biopic

‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’: Everything You Need to Know About Zac Efron’s Ted Bundy Biopic
Never let it be said that Zac Efron isn’t open to taking some risks. For his next project, the “High School Musical” and “Baywatch” star is moving very firmly away from comedic and family-friendly fare into darker waters. In Joe Berlinger’s upcoming biopic, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” Efron takes on the role of Ted Bundy, one of America’s most prolific and terrifying serial killers. Bundy was executed in 1989 after confessing to the murder of dozens of women, including a 12-year-old.

The new film is still in production, but it’s already garnered a heady amount of buzz, much of it thanks to Efron’s own willingness to share insider photos from the set on his social media channels, providing his followers a look inside a project that doesn’t look to be toning down the more terrifying elements of Bundy’s story. Aided by a starry cast,
