uh interesting....

i always remember what jim said at his SAG Conversations interview, when the The Normal Heart fiml was being produce, that he was glad the cast was different because he rather had something new altogether than trying to reproduce a moment that's just for the theater. this could be an interesting project for him for sure. i'm hoping it happens!

I joined this group because I'm a big fan of Jim Parsons.  I saw him in Boys in the Band and I think he is a wonderful actor and seems like a sweet guy. I hope him the best when BBT comes to a close as I wish all the other actors continued success Willmiss this show but I agree with Chuck Lorre for bringing it to an end.

From The Hollywood Reporter

Sundance: Netflix Nabbing Zac Efron Ted Bundy Drama 'Extremely Wicked' for $9M 

Though Sundance officially wrapped yesterday, the deal-making continues. Netflix is closing in on a deal for U.S. rights and some international territories to the Zac Efron as serial killer Ted Bundy drama Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. A source pegged the deal at a staggering $9 million.

Directed by Joe Berlinger -- the Oscar-nominated helmer behind Paradise Lost who excels in the true crime genre -- the film chronicles the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years. Lily Collins plays Kloepfer, while Haley Joel Osment, Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich and Jim Parsons round out the cast.

The film sparked a late-fest bidding war that also involved STX and Lionsgate. Netflix will give the film an awards-season theatrical run for star Efron sometime in the fall.

I should clarify that I too find the subject material very dark and morbid. However, I will watch for Jim and Zac. I also think that Zac is going to get a lot of accolades for this role, as it is very different from what he has done in the past.

To be clear, the movie isn't about the murders that took place.  None are shown on screen.  It's more about how Ted Bundy used his charm and good looks to lure his victims and convince people that he wasn't capable of such horrible crimes. It's about his ego and use of influence that let him get away with what he did for so long and have people around him that were loyal to him, even in the face of mounting evidence against him.

The story is told from his long time girlfriend's perspective. It's not about the act of murder, it's about the psychology of a murderer.

But then again, that's creepy, too. Someone who can powerfully manipulate with their looks and charm and believe that they themselves are wonderful no matter what they do. (heebie jeebies)

But, that is in good taste that the murders will not be shown, a definite plus.
