Justin Lin In Talks For “True Detective”

“Fast Five” director Justin Lin is in early talks to helm two episodes of the upcoming second season of HBO’s highly acclaimed anthology series “True Detective”.

Many details, including budgets and vision, reportedly still need to be worked out. The move to multiple helmets for the eight new episodes marks a change from the first season which was entirely helmed by filmmaker Cary Fukunaga. Fukunaga will not return for the second season.

Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn are all reportedly in talks for roles. Decisions however are going to have to be made soon as filming is scheduled to begin later this month.

Creator Nic Pizzolatto will pen the second season, and it’s unclear which two episodes Lin would direct.
