This should come as a relief to everyone for obvious reasons.
The film, which tells the story of Bundy's killing spree through the eyes of his former girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), who struggled for a long time to understand how the man she loved could be so, well, extremely wicked, shockingly evil, and vile. Efron assured ET that the project is by no means a celebratory biopic.
"It's very interesting. I think the movie itself is really deep," Efron said. "It doesn't really glorify Ted Bundy. He wasn't a person to be glorified. It simply tells a story and sort of how the world was able to be charmed over by this guy who was notoriously evil and the vexing position that so many people were put in, the world was put in. It was fun to go and experiment in that realm of reality."
"Fun" is an interesting way to describe the experience of putting yourself in a serial killer's shoes, but you know, to each his own!
