While she may have just closed the last chapter in the Maze Runner franchise, Kaya Scodelario, who played Theresa in all three films, is already looking forward. Scodelario confirmed on Twitter that she had signed on to star in the upcoming Ted Bundy thriller Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile starring Zac Efron.
Kaya will be taking on the role of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy’s (Efron) ex-wife Carole Ann Boone. The two carried on a relationship all the way through his 1979 televised trial presided by Judge Edward Cowart who will be played by John Malkovich. Lilly Collins is also set to star as Bundy’s girlfriend who eventually ended up turning him in.
Efron recently shared a behind the scenes photo alongside the film’s director Joe Berlinger.

Scodelario most recently starred in last year’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales as well as the final Maze Runner film The Death Cure, which topped the box office with $23.6 million this past weekend. Extremely Wicked will be produced by Voltage Pictures and COTA Entertainment alongside Michael Simkin and Jason Barrett of Efron’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild.
What do you think of the casting?
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
