Justin Lin in Talks to Direct a Couple Episodes of ‘True Detective’ Season 2

– by Gig Patta

Last year, Justin Lin indicated he wanted to move from the “Fast & Furious” franchise into something entirely different.

Now here’s a great opportunity for the director.

Multiple sources told The Hollywood Reporter that he’s in talks to director two episodes for the upcoming “True Detective” season. Several details may still be in discussion including budgets and visions.

Season two will not have its inaugural season stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. That entire season was directed by Cary Fukunaga, who won an Emmy for best director of a drama series.

Several names are rumored to be possible leads in the next season including Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn.

The second season will premiere on HBO next year.
