TRUE DETECTIVE: Vince Vaughn, Colin Ferrell official for season two

After much speculation, HBO has confirmed that Vince Vaughn and Colin Ferrell will star in the second season of TRUE DETECTIVE.

Colin Farrell is Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vince Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.

The official plot is described as: Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.

The eight-episode hour-long drama is set to begin production later this fall in California. Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes.
