'True Detective' Season 2 Eyes Rachel McAdams for Female Lead

5 September 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Along with today's news that Justin Lin is in talks to direct two episodes of HBO's True Detective, Variety reports that Rachel McAdams is vying for the female lead role alongside Elisabeth Moss.

While this is the first we're hearing about Rachel McAdams being in contention, Elisabeth Moss revealed last month that she had not been approached to star in the series, just days after a report revealed she was up for the female lead. However, a lot can change in one month, and it seems now that Elisabeth Moss is, in fact, in the running.

The role in question is, according to a July report, a sheriff from Montery, California who has a troubled past. Jessica Chastain was previously sought for the role in May, but she turned it down.

Variety also reports that Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn are currently in final negotiations for the other three lead roles. »
