As many folks are eagerly awaiting a new season of the HBO series True Detective, rumors on casting have been running rampant. But this is the first we’ve heard of a possible director choice. THR is reporting that Justin Lin from The Fast & The Furious franchise is in talks to direct two episodes of the upcoming second season.
This is a change from the first season where it was all directed by Cary Fukunaga, who ended up winning an Emmy for it. Fukunaga, like stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson will not be returning for the second go round.
Series creator Nic Pizzolatto is writing the season that is said to be set in California and involve three lead characters but no official casting has been made and filming is supposed to begin shooting sometime this month.
