2019 Sundance Film Festival

Zac attended various events during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival to promote Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile (January 25).



1969. Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) 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.
This is the story of Ted Bundy, one of the most notorious serial killers of all time. Collins shines as Liz, while Zac Efron gives a performance that could redefine his career. Renowned filmmaker Joe Berlinger, best known for his true-crime documentaries, proves to be the perfect match to bring this Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile true story to the screen.

Kate Hudson, Craig Robinson & Zac Efron Line Up For Ana Lily Amirpour’s ‘Blood Moon’ — AFM

EXCLUSIVE: Kate Hudson (Almost Famous) and Craig Robinson (The Office) are set to star in writer-director Ana Lily Amirpour’s (A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night) third feature Blood Moon, which is being produced by Oscar-winner John Lesher (Birdman) via his Le Grisbi banner.

Zac Efron is in talks to join the intriguing fantasy feature, which will chart the story of a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum in New Orleans. CAA Media Finance and Rocket Science will be selling to buyers at the AFM.

Set in hedonistic streets of New Orleans, the film is inspired by fantasy-adventure movies of the ’80s and ’90s. It is understood to pair strange, violent, and humorous sequences with a range of music from heavy metal to Italian techno. Production is set to begin in spring 2019.

Lesher said, “Lily’s unique vision and poetic style sets her apart from the pack. She is truly one of the most exciting filmmakers working today.”

Amirpour blasted onto the scene in 2014 with her vampire debut A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night. She followed that up with desert-set fever dream The Bad Batch, which won the Special Jury Price at the 2016 Venice Film Festival. She recently directed the UCP pilot Briarpatch for executive producer Sam Esmail (Mr. Robot), plus episodes of Noah Hawley’s Legion, Bad Robot’s Castle Rock, and Jordan’s Peele’s upcoming reimagining of The Twilight Zone for CBS All Access.

She is represented by CAA and Alan Wertheimer; Hudson by CAA and Untitled Entertainment; Efron by CAA and Alchemy Entertainment; and Robinson by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment.
