Ever since it debuted at Sundance, Zac Efron's Ted Bundy movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has been dominating the news cycle. Some have said it glorifies the serial killer, while this reviewer disagreed. But no matter which side you fall, everyone wants to know when the movie will air to a mass audience.
The wait to find out which company bought the film is officially over...though it still might be some time before we can actually watch it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix has purchased EWSEAV for $9 Million (P470 million) after a bidding war with STX and Lionsgate.
But just because it's Netflix, which also aired The Ted Bundy Tapes by the same director of the Sundance hit, doesn't mean we'll get to see Zac in action as Ted right away. Netflix is reportedly waiting for a Fall theatrical release in order to give Zac a better chance in next year's awards season. If you're buying into the hype, the High School Musical star may be able to swing a win or two.
