Filmmaker Cary Fukunaga has scored a bunch of praise for his work directing all episodes of HBO’s currently airing and highly acclaimed “True Detective” series.
Will he back? Sort of. Fukunaga will stay on with the anthology series, but in an executive producer capacity only. How much further he will be involved in the show’s second season remains to be seen.
Fukunaga has also sold an untitled pitch to 20th Century Fox which Nicole Riegel will pen. That project has a “contemporary wartime context”.
The “Jane Eyre” and “Sin Nombre” director also has “Beasts of No Nation,” “Noble Assassin” and a two-film adaptation of Stephen King’s “It” on his schedule.
