Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer who was accused of murdering 17 men and boys over three decades, is getting renewed attention after his teen photo appeared on social media alongside that of the Disney star preparing to play him in a movie.

The photo of a young Dahmer was posted next to actor Ross Lynch, who starred in Disney's "Teen Beach Movie," in an Instagram post earlier this week.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote in July that Lynch had signed to play Dahmer in the independent movie "My Friend Dahmer." The movie is an adaptation of the graphic novel by Derf Backderf about the killer's teenage years.

Marc Meyers wrote the script for the movie and will direct, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Jeremy Renner first played Dahmer on film in the 2002 independent movie titled "Dahmer."

Dahmer was accused of killing 17 males between 1978 and 1991, raping and dismembering them. He was eventually beaten to death while an inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin, on Nov. 28, 1994.

Lynch appeared in the Disney Channel's hit series "Austin and Ally" along with the "Teen Beach Movie" and its sequel. The actor also performs music as part of pop-rock band R5.

Fans reacted to Lynch's role on social media.
