Elizabeth Kloepfer is a relatively well-known name in the U.S, at least in certain circles.

The woman rose to fame decades ago when it came out that her boyfriend at one time was none other than notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, and that she had seen a composite drawing of him at one point when he was being hunted, but failed to recognize him.

Netflix has decided to adapt the woman's story into a new biopic, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile created by Joe Berlinger.

It goes through the story of the investigation into Bundy's murders from the perspective of two journalists who were determined to get more information out of the killer while he was on death row.

A lot remains shrouded in mystery about the death of Bundy, and the new film is sure to shed a lot of light onto the history of a person who has kept many engaged throughout the years.

Some have been skeptical of a new film focusing on the life of Bundy, especially so long after his death, but there seems to be a lot of interest in the production so far.

It will also be interesting to see the film in the context of the heavy privacy that Kloepfer has demanded around her life throughout the years.

The woman has maintained a relatively low-profile life after the world found out whom she was dating, and this is one of the rare occasions where e people have gotten a chance to get a glimpse into her own world.

Berlinger explained: "[She] has not seen the film. She does not want to see it. But we had a lot of conversations in pre-production. In fact, Lily Collins and I went to visit Elizabeth at her home with her daughter… She gave us all sorts of insights that the public doesn't know. Some of those insights she allowed us to put in the film. Some were just for us to hear."

He added: "We were thumbing through some photo albums that she decided to share with us,. Photos that most people haven't seen. The photos were this classic 1970s photos album with these square Instamatic photos with the date at the bottom. It was just a bunch of very nice family photos. A father figure, a mother, a daughter. Camping trips, birthday parties, pony rides, ski trips. One photo after the other of his really happy family unit."

Do you think the film will bring something new to the Bundy story, yes or no?
