Zac Efron continues to shed his Disney star past. In May, the actor revealed that he will play the serial killer Ted Bundy in the upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

As you may recall, Ted Bundy is one of the country’s most notorious and disturbing serial killers of all time. (Before his execution in 1989, he admitted to assaulting, raping, and murdering at least 30 women.) In the film, Efron will be portraying Bundy during the “prime” of his crime spree, in the 1970s, with the role promising to see Efron in a darker turn than, say, Baywatch.

Now, we finally have a first look of Efron as Bundy.

“Meet Ted,” Efron tweeted on Wednesday afternoon, showing off a black and white photo of himself as Bundy.

Lily Collins, who portrays Bundy’s long-time girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer in the film, also posted a photo on Instagram to express her excitement over the role.

Efron has remained relatively mum since accepting the part last summer, only speaking to his Greatest Showman costar Zendaya about how be believes it’ll be the most challenging role in his career. “Ted Bundy is going to be a challenge. I think it’s going to be different and it’s going to be fun,” he said a few weeks ago. “I’m super stoked.”

The film is expected to be released by the end of 2018.
