CINCINNATI -- The people filming the Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins around Greater Cincinnati have been taking some time to give back to the community.
The producers of "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" have been donating catering at the end of each day to local homeless shelters, according to Film Cincinnati, the group that works to bring movie and TV production to the area.
Kristen Schlotman, the executive director of Film Cincinnati, said the production has employed locals. They have also filled local hotel rooms and taken in local arts, culture and food. While shooting an extended scene in Covington this week, the production gave money to all 75 crew members so their could try out some Mainstrasse's restaurants.
Local students have also benefited from the local film shoot. The producers brought in students from Highlands High School to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the film industry works and to interview more than 20 crew members.
"It’s the giving back to the community in unique ways that we feel excited about," Schlotman said. "The fact that they are willing to take time out of their busy schedules to talk to high school students and give to the homeless, is a true testament to both the talent in front of and behind the camera."
