Disappointingly there is not 100% confirmation here, but Deadline is reporting that Justin Lin is in talks to direct at least the first two episodes of Season Two of TRUE DETECTIVE. If you are not familiar with Mr. Lin he is a director/producer of a few movies in the Fast & Furious franchise and is also noted as the executive producer/director for the new Fall Show Scorpion for CBS. Assuredly, creator Nic Pizzolatto handpicked Lin to get TRUE DETECTIVE’s new season underway and other directors will be announced for further episodes.
Now Mr. Lin has experience of filming and being around fast cars. This might be a stretch to say this just because Lin has filmed racing vehicles, but since Pizzolatto’s next season examines “the investigation of a corrupt city manager who gets murdered amidst a potential groundbreaking transportation deal” are there going to be exciting car chases this time around? We eagerly await that answer and more.
As usual HBO has yet to officially confirm anything including whether Colin Ferrell, Taylor Kitsch and/or Vince Vaughn are onboard and there is still question of the female character involved. We hope that Justin Lin is a good choice and we also hope for more answers about casting and plot as time goes on. Stay with HBOWatch and we will get you more as it becomes available. It will all flesh out soon enough; there is no need to become nihilistic or morose over the fact.
