“What if the star of Inglourious Basterds adapted a novel from the creator of True Detective?” You likely never asked yourself that question, but here’s the answer anyway: Galveston. The film hails from actress and filmmaker Mélanie Laurent, based on the novel of the same name from author Nic Pizzolatto. Below, check out the Galveston trailer, highlighting Laurent’s stylish adaptation.

True Detective Season 3 2019

I can’t think of a television show that’s experienced a drop in quality as drastic as the one that came between seasons one and two of HBO’s True Detective. But from what I can gather, the primary reason behind that plunge was because season two was rushed into production, and that certainly won’t be the case for True Detective season 3. HBO chief Casey Bloys just confirmed that the crime series will finally return to the network in 2019 – and while he was at it, he gave a new update about the long-awaited Deadwood movie, too.

Jeremy Saulnier

HBO is officially moving forward with True Detective season 3, which will star Mahershala Ali (Moonlight). Here’s what makes this announcement especially sweet: Ali will be directed by Jeremy Saulnier, the filmmaker behind Green Room and Blue Ruin. Saulnier and the show’s creator, Nic Pizzolatto, will direct the third season – which will unfold in three different time periods.

Below, learn more about True Detective season 3.

true detective season 3

Like a decades-old murder case where the deranged killer was never caught, HBO’s True Detective won’t stay buried. While the show has been on indefinite hiatus since the end of its deeply unpopular second season, it sounds like the once-beloved anthology mystery show may be lurching back into life with the help of a television veteran responsible for some of the greatest shows of all time. Are you ready for True Detective season 3?

Robert Downey Jr HBO Series

It remains unclear whether True Detective will return for a third season, following a critically acclaimed first season and a widely panned second one. But in the meantime, it looks like creator Nic Pizzolatto will have a different HBO project to keep him busy. He and Robert Downey Jr. are in talks for a drama series at HBO that’s probably a reworked version of the Perry Mason movie that Downey has been trying to get off the ground for a while.  Read More »

True Detective Season 2 early buzz

For most fans and critics, True Detective season two was a disappointment. The series’ creator and writer, Nic Pizzolatto, didn’t live up to the high expectations following the Cary Fukunaga-directed first season. Season two averaged higher ratings than its predecessor, but by the time the ending aired, the viewership was considerably lower than the previous finale.

Now, it’s rumored the once acclaimed series might not return at all. Below, check out the recent update for True Detective season three.

True Detective Season 2 early buzz

Who’s to blame for True Detective season two? That’s not a question I’m asking, since I genuinely enjoyed this past season, but a lot of fan expectations were not met following the terrific first outing, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

HBO president of programming, Michael Lombardo, wouldn’t call the series’ sophomore effort a failure, but he does take responsibility for rushing the latest season. After the jump, read Lombardo’s comments on True Detective season two.

True Detective season 2 character posters

Season two of True Detective doesn’t have many passionate fans. Even people who enjoyed it, such as myself, admit it didn’t live up to what creator Nic Pizzolatto pulled off with the first season of the show. Despite the True Detective backlash and harsh criticisms, it still did considerably well in the ratings; it performed better than season one, with the exception of the season finale. The title and its premise — movie stars appearing for only one season — is still probably a draw for viewers. Plus, one misstep shouldn’t tarnish what Pizzolatto, director Cary Fukunaga (Beasts of No Nation), and all involved accomplished with the first season.

The creator may have a chance to win some fans back, if his new deal with HBO is any indication. Learn more after the jump.

David Cronenberg on True Detective

Man, Nic Pizzolatto just can’t catch a break. The mind behind HBO’s True Detective was accused of misogyny during the first season of his once acclaimed show, and then season two took a real beating from critics and fans. Now, even David Cronenberg (The Fly), who was offered the chance to direct a season two episode, has some harsh words for Pizzolatto. Check out Cronenberg on True Detective after the jump.

True Detective behind the scenes

The first episode of True Detective‘s second season has aired, and the internet is already working double-time to react to the show’s return. Is it better than the first season, or even as good? Early reviews have some insight, but even they can’t make a definitive claim yet, as HBO only offered access to the first three of eight episodes. Whatever the show is at the opening, there’s a lot left to see.

HBO has offered something new to follow up the season premiere: a brief True Detective behind the scenes look, which features interviews with new stars Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. Exec producer Scott Stephens shows up, too. You’ll see creator/writer Nic PIzzolatto at work, but he doesn’t appear as an interview; rather, the show is meant to be his voice.  Read More »
