Variety reports that Colin Farrell is currently in discussions to star in the second season of HBO's TRUE DETECTIVES. No details have been released as to whether the actor would co-star with a female lead as has been rumored. Network executives only reveal that the sophomore season will be "more exciting" than the first.
Yesterday, the first season of "True Detective" earned multiple Emmy nominations, including lead actor recognition for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as a best drama nomination.
HBO has not commented on this story.
The first season of the series was written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga. It centered on two detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana.
The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.
