Netflix Has Paid $9 Million To Distribute Zac Efron’s ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’

Feb 4, 2019

Netflix is closing in on a $9 million deal for U.S. and some international rights to the Zac Efron-led ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.’

This is the first narrative feature buy for Netflix at this year’s Sundance market. The film created a bidding war at Sundance that also had STX and Lionsgate in the mix.

Joe Berlinger directed the film, with a screenplay from Michael Werwie. Also, Berlinger was nominated for an Oscar for ‘Paradise Lost.’

Netflix made sense for distribution, as they already have Berlinger’s docuseries ‘Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes,’ which is about the same topic.

The film chronicles the crimes of Ted Bundy from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins). She refused to believe the truth about him for years.

Further, the cast includes Haley Joel Osment, Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich, Jim Parsons and Angela Sarafyan.

Netflix will give the film an awards season theatrical run for Efron in the fall.
