It is time to get excited because Colin Farrell has confirmed that he will star in the second season of "True Detective". This happened in an interview with "The Sunday World". Here is what he had to say:
“I’m doing the second series. I’m so excited. I know it will be eight episodes and take around four or five months to shoot. I know very little about it, but we’re shooting in the environs of Los Angeles which is great. It means I get to stay at home and see the kids.”
The Irish actor also revealed that the rest of the cast is still unknown. However, it has been revealed that Nic Pizzolatto will return to write the next series, which looks set to pick up on the bloody murder of a corrupt city businessman found dead the night before a major transportation deal.Three police officials from different cities are put in charge of solving the high profile case.
While the first season was directly solely by Emmy winner Cary Fukanaga, the new run will likely make use of multiple directors. No one has been confirmed as yet, but William Friedkin and The Fast and the Furious’ Justin Lin are among rumoured names.
