“From his dramatic turn in ‘Paperboy’ to his hilarious performance in ‘Neighbors,’ he continues to impress audiences and critics alike with his extraordinary versatility and range. We couldn’t be more excited to see him in this amazing role,” Chartier said.

No one knows exactly how many women the handsome and charismatic Bundy actually killed. Although he reportedly admitted to as many as 36 murders in seven states before he was put to death in Florida's electric chair in 1989, ­­­­the exact number is unknown.
