Fast & Furious' Justin Lin In Talks For True Detective 2
The action filmmaker is rumoured to direct two episodes of Season 2.
A-list Hollywood stars aren't the only ones lining up for the second series of 'True Detective'. The allure of getting involved with the hit television show has now spread to directors.
Lin has been in high demand since steering the 'F&F' franchise to over a billion dollars at the box office, having helmed the last four sequels. The seventh instalment, currently filming, has been turned over to 'Saw' director James Wan.
'True Detective' starred Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson during its debut season, but the series is receiving a completely new cast for its next run. Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Elizabeth Moss are all rumoured to star in Series 2, along with Vince Vaughn who has reportedly been offered the villain role.
While much of the upcoming series is being kept tightly under wraps, creator Nic Pizzolatto told a podcast recently that season two will be set in California. “Not Los Angeles, but some of the much lesser-known venues of California. And we’re going to try to capture a certain psycho-sphere ambiance of the place, much like we did in season one.”
‘True Detective’ received 12 Emmy nominations and took home five, including an Outstanding Lead Actor statue for McConaughey.
