Metallica frontman James Hetfield is set to join the thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile at Voltage Pictures and COTA Entertainment.

The story, which is currently in production, centers on the relationship between serial killer Ted Bundy (Zac Efron) and his longtime girlfriend (Lily 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. Jim Parsons, Haley Joel Osment, John Malkovich, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Terry Kinney, and Dylan Baker also star.

The project marks Hetfield’s first dramatic role in a movie playing someone other than himself, and is directed by Joe Berlinger who also helmed the documentary Metallica: Some Kind of Monster. Michael Werwie penned the script.
