‘True Detective’ season 2: Colin Farrell confirmed, Justin Lin directing two episodes

The True Detective rumors have been swirling since before the first season concluded, but the first confirmation has been made – Colin Farrell will star in the show’s second season. Additionally, Fast Five director Justin Lin is set to helm the first two episodes.

Farrell told The Sunday World, “I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited.”  He then elaborated that the season would indeed be shooting within the “environs” of Los Angeles.    Apparently his character is named Ray Velcaro a man “who has been damaged by years of trauma in both his personal and professional lives.”

True detective title cardVaughn is reportedly circling the role of Frank Semyon, “a former thug-turned-businessman, who’s wheeling and dealing gets him into some sticky situations.”  Interestingly enough, the World also reports that Elisabeth Moss and Rachel McAdams are up for the same part – the “strong female lead” linked to Jessica Chastain for some time.

“This is really early, but I’ll tell you (it’s about) hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system,” creator Nic Pizzolatto said of season two.

Season 2 of Nic Pizzolatto‘s show will reportedly take place in three different California cities (but not in Los Angeles) with a plot that, to me, is beginning to resemble Chinatown via Zodiac in that it’s about land deals but also how different law enforcement agencies intersect with each other.

The casting news came with this semi-logline that this next stretch of episodes, “looks set to pick up on the vicious murder of a corrupt businessman found dead the night before he completes a deal.”

Season two is set to resume production next month for a premiere sometime next summer.
