Kelly Reilly ("Flight"), Michael Irby ("Almost Human"), Abigail Spencer ("Mad Men") and Leven Rambin ("Two Night Stand") have all scored supporting roles in the upcoming second season of HBO's "True Detective".
The quartet have either signed, or are in the final stages of discussions, to join the new season which revolves around three cops and a criminal who team to unravel a conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Reilly will play a series regular named Morgan and described only as 'self-obsessed', Spencer will play a sexual assault survivor, Irby will play the partner of the female cop, and Rambin will play a pretty girl and former addict.
The first table read for the season takes place tomorrow.
Two high-profile projects have just scored new screenwriters.
"Flight" and "Real Steel" screenwriter John Gatins has been hired to rewrite the script for "Skull Island," Legendary's King Kong prequel that explores the creature's home island.
Gatins takes over from Max Borenstein ("Godzilla," "Seventh Son") who penned the initial script. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing and Tom Hiddleston is slated to star in the project.
Meanwhile, "Wrath of the Titans" writer David Leslie Johnson has come onboard the film adaptation of Ray Bradbury's 1962 fantasy novel "Something Wicked This Way Comes" at Disney Pictures.
Seth Grahame-Smith helms the story of two teen boys in a small Midwestern town visited by a carnival.
Synopsis: Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work, discovers the high-speed world of L. A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.
I just saw Nightcrawler and WOW, incredible. The whole movie was great. Gyllenhaal was just amazing. I know it's a competitive year, but I think he's going to get a nod. submitted by JonBananas [link] [8 comments]
