Justin Lin Up to Helm TRUE DETECTIVE Episodes


The second season of HBO’s hit series True Detective is right around the corner, but the secrecy surrounding a follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut season is nearly impossible to crack.

We still know next to nothing, but a few pieces of information have leaked out about the latest nugget surrounding a director in talks to helm. It appears that Fast and Furious helmer Justin Lin is in talks to be the first True Detective: Season 2 director.

He’s reportedly in talks to direct “at least” the first two of the eight-episode season, replacing Season 1 helmer Cary Fukunaha (who won an Emmy for best director of a drama series).

Colin Ferrell, Taylor Kitsch, Elisabeth Moss, Rachel McAdams and Vince Vaughn are expected to be in the cast, but there’s no casting set in stone yet.

Some previously released story information suggest that Nic Pizzolatto is writing the second season, which is set in California and is said to revolve around the investigation of a corrupt city manager who gets murdered amidst a potential groundbreaking transportation deal.

True Detective: Season 2 is supposed to begin production in September and is expected to air Summer 2015.
