“Maze Runner” Star Signs On For Ted Bundy Movie - 

Kaya Scodelario is being added to “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile.”

The movie stars Zac Efron as the prolific serial killer Ted Bundy, who was too “normal” looking for many to believe he had killed women. Scodelario will portray Bundy’s ex-wife while Lilly Collins will be his girlfriend.

John Malkovich inked the role as the judge presiding over the murder trial.

Shortly before his execution in 1989, Bundy confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states between 1974 and 1978.

Katy Perry ought to be thrilled to learn that music producer Quincy Jones is on her side in the “Bad Blood” feud with Taylor Swift.

Quincy despises Taylor. In an interview with GQ magazine, he accuses her of being lazy in the recording studio. (quote) “The only place you find ‘success’ before ‘work’ is the dictionary, and that’s alphabetical.”

The Grammys have given Quincy 29 awards. The most significant was 35 years ago for Album and Record of the Year for Michael Jackson’s Thriller and “Beat It.”

When asked about Taylor Swift’s songwriting, which some have called the best of the decade, Quincy told GQ, (quote) “Whatever crumbles your cookie. We need more songs, man. [Freaking] songs, not hooks.”

Talk About It:

  • Taylor either puts Quincy’s name in her “burn book” or sends him a bouquet of flowers with a lengthy hand-written note.
  • Quincy is legendary, which is another word for “old.” And based on his views about Taylor, old-fashioned.
  • In the same GQ interview, he makes crude jokes about dating very young girls and cheating on them. He’s since apologized.
  • Taylor’s haters complain that she’s a privileged white girl. They’re not necessarily wrong.
  • Twice the Grammys honored Taylor for Album of the Year. Quincy has won twice, too, but Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry haven't won once. #rigged
