True Blood Recap: Bar Rescue

2 hours ago | | See recent news »

Death? Mourning? Ain’t nobody on Sunday’s True Blood got time for that. Less than 24 hours after losing Alcide, Sookie re-focused her efforts on saving her friends from the H-Vamps — and, of course, getting her flirt on.

To be fair, Sookie and Jason did place some quick, tear-jerking phone calls to Jackson and Hoyt (Hoyt!!!) to inform them of their respective losses. Hoyt’s reaction was particularly heartbreaking, not only because he loved his crazy mama, but because Jason had to pretend like they didn’t know each other. »

Upcoming Anthony Hopkins Thriller Solace Was Going To Be A Se7en Sequel At One Point

6 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

David Fincher's Se7en is a film that really never needs a sequel. The movie is an excellent, self-contained serial killer mystery, and while the idea of seeing Morgan Freeman and/or Brad Pitt come back to those roles, it truly never needs to happen. As you can imagine, that didn't really stop Hollywood from trying, but the good news is that those efforts didn't pan out. The weird news is that the sequel that never was may actually be coming to theaters later this year in a different form. This curious bit of information was picked up by a user on Reddit, who discovered a MovieHole article from back in 2011 that says that the upcoming supernatural thriller Solace, starring Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell, was actually at one point developed as a sequel to Se7en. As the story goes, the project first began life - under its current »

Colin Farrell In Talks For True Detective

12 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The first season of HBO’s True Detective was a big success for the Us cable channel, scoring acclaim for its twisty, complex, thoughtful plotting and dark-skewing performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, who both won Emmy nominations for their work. Given the show’s anthology style, neither will return for season 2, and The Wrap reports that Colin Farrell is now in talks to step in.HBO isn’t commenting on casting rumours, so Farrell’s involvement won’t be confirmed until there’s an official announcement. But he’s certainly a solid choice for the cop drama. In addition to the Seven Psychopaths star, Taylor Kitsch is also being floated as a likely co-star. He’s had a rough time of it in cinemas, but Kitsch was praised for his turn on HBO’s TV Movie The Normal Heart.Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto is keeping most of the »

True Blood's Lauren Bowles on Season 7 Wedding Bells, Chances for a Movie

14 hours ago | | See recent news »

With people dying left and right (and occasionally naked) on True Blood‘s final season, it’s becoming harder to predict just how it’ll all end — and Lauren Bowles is relishing every minute of her front-row seat to Bon Temps’ demise.

Potential Powerhouse – How to Fix Pride and Glory

15 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One doesn’t have to be an analyst or expert in all things cinema to note the decline of certain genres and niches within the film-making machine. While comic-book movies and superhero franchises have risen to soaring heights over the last fifteen years, we have seen a dramatic drop in other, classic outputs, seemingly to make way. A perfect example of this would be the procedural crime thriller, tales of murder investigation and corruption, a hallmark of hard boiled fiction from the 1970′s onwards that by now have tailed off. It says a lot that the most recent archetypal release from said field was last year’s Broken City, a box office and critical failure from highly rated scribe Stephen Knight. A production line that once gave us the likes of Chinatown, Serpico and Seven is now decrepit and seemingly unfit for purpose.

Not only is this genre starved, it »

Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Eyed for 'True Detective' Season 2

11 July 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

HBO is refusing to give any comment on its possible True Detective Season 2 casting, but shortly after it was announced that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of four main leads, it was revealed that Taylor Kitsch is being eyed by the network to also star in the hit HBO drama series.

Colin Farrell will play the older lead male detective if he signs on, with Taylor Kitsch playing his younger partner. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo commented earlier in the week that an official casting announcement is coming soon.

An insider claims that Colin Farrell fills the character type HBO is looking for, a true movie star who is both rugged and gritty. The actor is said to be very close to signing his deal. At this time, it's not known if Taylor Kitsch has officially entered negotiations.

Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund is also rumored to be »

Latest 'True Detective' Rumors Name Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch

11 July 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »


The Wrap says Colin Farrell is in talks to star in the second season of HBO's True Detective, an anthology performance-based mystery series whose first iteration just nabbed it's cast some Emmy nominations.

Series creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto has been pretty tight lipped about what the second season would be about and who would be in it. It's going to involve the transportation industry, the occult, take place in the State of California and has about four "lead" roles.

The Wrap also says Taylor Kitsch, whose performance in The Normal Heart impressed enough to give him another go at stardom (Gambit, John Carter, Battleship, how many chances will Taylor Kitsch get?).

As of now Nic Pizzolatto is half-done scripting Season 2, which means look for a casting announcement as soon as next week. 

These reports were squarely denied by HBO. You know, like they are all the time.  »

‘True Detective’ Season 2: Colin Farrell in Talks; Taylor Kitsch Being Eyed

11 July 2014 2:34 PM, PDT | | See recent Screen Rant news »

We just barely reported on HBO programming president Michael Lombardo having said that he expects True Detective season two casting news to arrive something over the forthcoming week – now we have the next best thing to an official announcement. Multiples sites are reporting that Colin Farrell is deep in talks to play the lead character in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s high art/neo-Noir hybrid series, while Taylor Kitsch is said to be a front-runner for one of the three remaining “central roles.”

Farrell, according to The Wrap, is near to reaching a deal that will see him portray True Detective season two’s “older male lead” - a role that apparently requires someone who ...

Taylor Kitsch and Colin Farrell Might Be the Next True Detectives

11 July 2014 1:36 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Just a day after True Detective earned 12 Emmy nominations, news has broken that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch are in talks to star in the second season of HBO's smash hit. We have quite a few details about season two, but this is the first time Farrell's and Kitsch's names have been tossed into the ring. I kind of like this unexpected combination, though I thought there might be a female lead this time around. What do you think? Are you into Kitsch and Farrell? Trick question! Of course you are. »

Collin Farrell in Talks to Join True Detective Season 2

11 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Colin Farrell is in talks to take on the lead role in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto‘s HBO series True Detective. There's also word that Taylor Kitsch is also among the leading candidates for the second male lead. 

The first season of True Detective was incredible, and if you haven't seen it, you need too. It recently earned several Emmy nominations on Thursday, including lead actor nominations for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as a Best Drama nomination. Those two actors both need to win for their roles!

HBO CEO Richard Plepler and president Michael Lombardo recently said that the first two scripts for season two are “more exciting” than those of the first season. I have no idea what that means but I assume they are just trying to build buzz.

Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch to Star in True Detective Season 2?

11 July 2014 11:59 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

It might be time to retire the True Detective season two Twitter meme. A source close to the situation confirmed to E!

The first season of True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson received numerous Emmy nominations, including one for each lead actor.

Colin Farrell’s ‘True Detective’ Negotiations Follow the Series’ Proud Tradition of Being Confusing as All Hell

11 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Would the word “Carcosa” sound cooler when spoken in an Irish brogue? I guess it doesn’t really matter. Because while Colin Farrell might be in talks for True Detective, the second season has been confirmed for a California setting. So unless creator Nic Pizzolatto was writing the series with an Irishman in mind, chances are Farrell will have to put on his best American accent for this one. Also, that whole Carcosa thing is over and done with, so there’s really no earthly reason for Farrell to be putting those syllables in that order. But yes, the announement is official. Colin Farrell. True Detective. In talks. In a story broken by Deadline, we have the first big piece of news for the HBO series’ second season (Sorry William Friedkin, but unless you’re willing to make your directing gig on the season official, Farrell wins the “first big news” statuette).

Colin Farrell Could Star in 'True Detective' Season Two

11 July 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Speculations abound for the second season of creator Nic Pozzolato's dark, moody, acclaimed and now Emmy-nominated HBO series "True Detective." According to Deadline, Colin Farrell is first in line to star in season two, which will roots its mystery in a contemporary California setting. At Thursday's TV Critics Association presentation in Los Angeles, HBO prez Michael Lombardo said, "The people we will cast will be well-known names. But that wasn't our ambition (in season one)." Allegedly season two will feature an ensemble cast -- but it's unclear if Pizzolatto will address his critics and put a female star at the front-and-center of this very male-oriented series. (Season one stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson both picked up Best Actor in a Drama noms yesterday; the series is up for Best Drama at the Emmys.) It would be refreshing to see Farrell take a meaty role -- his dry "Winter's Tale" earlier this year fell flat. »

Colin Farrell may become a 'True Detective'

11 July 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even as HBO reveals more details about its "exciting" second season of "True Detective" at the Television Critics Association press tour today, one big name is revealed to be in "deep negotiations" to play one of the lead characters.  Deadline reports Colin Farrell is in the running for Nic Pizzolatto's follow-up. HBO has not yet confirmed the Irish actor for being in contention, though they said during TCAs that fans can expect a casting announcement next week, and that there are “four central roles.” "I think the people we will cast will be well-known names, but that wasn't our ambition and I don't use that as a challenge," HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo said during TCAs this week. "Great writing draws great actors." Yesterday, the first season of "True Detective" scored two Lead Actor nods for Drama during the 2014 Emmy Awards nominations, for its stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. »

Farrell, Kitsch Up For Next "True Detective"?

Yesterday came the confirmed news that the upcoming second season of HBO's "True Detective" would feature four main leads. On top of that, casting announcements regarding those roles could arrive as early as next week.

Today, one of the names has apparently leaked - Colin Farrell. The Wrap claims the Irish actor is in deep negotiations to portray one of the main characters which is set in the lesser known areas of California.

In less certain news, the site also adds that "John Carter" star Taylor Kitsch is in the mix to play one of the characters, and Garrett Hedlund is also apparently rumored for a part. »

True Detective: Colin Farrell in Talks for Season 2 of the Hit HBO Series; Taylor Kitsch Also in the Mix

11 July 2014 11:26 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

True Detective season 2 may have finally begun casting its major roles as Colin Farrell is in talks to join the hit HBO series.  Additionally, Taylor Kitsch might be in the mix as well  Earlier today, we posted an interview with HBO's President of Programming Michael Lombardo and Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler, and Lombardo said he assumed "at least some announcements will be happening in the next week."  Since Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson got two juicy roles and earned nominations for Best Actor in a Drama Series, the show is presumably a hot ticket in Hollywood for actors and actresses looking for rich material in an acclaimed series that won't permanently take them away from acting in movies.  Yesterday, creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto revealed that there will be four central roles, and now Farrell presumably has one of them, and Kitsch is being eyed for a part as well. »

Colin Farrell In Talks to Star in HBO's 'True Detective' Season Two

Well finally, finally there is some news regarding the second season of HBO's "True Detective" worth reporting as The Wrap says Colin Farrell is in talks for one of the lead roles with Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Lone Survivor) in contention to play one of the season's other characters and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also rumored to be circling a role. Series writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto was recently quoted by The Daily Beast discussing the second season and said he's expanded on the characters he originally started with when he began writing saying, "They've deepened and become richer... I would say there are four central roles." If we're to gain anything from this casting story from The Wrap, three of those roles belong to males while there was hope the second season would be driven by at least one female character if not more. Perhaps it stands to assume the »
