This is Netflix's second offering based on the notorious serial killer, the first being Joe Berlinger's docu-series, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes that was dropped by the streaming-giant on slasher's birthday on January 24.
Ted Bundy was an American serial killer, rapist, kidnapper, and necrophile, who assaulted and murdered over 30 young women in the 1970s.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile which was premiered at Sundance Film Festival this January, sees Zac Efron as Bundy and Lily Collins as Liz Kloepfer.
But there's some good news for the Metallica fans here.
Hetfield, the guitarist and singer for the legendary heavy metal band, will be seen portraying the role of sergeant Bob Hayward in the biopic-thriller.

Officer Hayward had cornered and arrested Bundy first in 1975 and found a ski mask, pantyhose, crowbar, handcuffs among other suspicious items in his infamous tan Volkswagen Beetle.
While Metallica has shared Hetfield's dramatic avatar previously, the front-man can now be seen in action in the biopic's fresh-new trailer released by Netflix on April 2.
