It turns out that creator and writer Nic Pizzolatto is a bit more tight-lipped over True Detective details than we may have originally imagined.
“I have the excuse of having been out of the loop, because I’ve been in Africa the last five months…The scripts aren’t done yet, you know, they’re still trying to figure out talent and the pilot…”
Fukunaga has been shooting a film in Africa starring Idris Elba titled Beasts of No Nation. So, yes, he does technically have an excuse for being in the dark.
But it is interesting how even those closely involved with season one know just as much as we do, or even less, about season two. Unfortunately Fukunaga won’t be returning the director’s chair this time around, but he is currently attached as an Executive Producer.
