BREAKING: Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell confirmed for ‘True Detective’
HBO has confirmed their casting and Justin Lin to direct the first two episodes. The network has also released the following logline:
Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.
Farrell will play a “compromised detective” torn between police bosses and mobster, Vaughn plays the “career criminal” who could lose everything when his attempt to go legit is interrupted by the murder of his business partner.
The casting for one major female character will be announced soon.
Directed by Ron Howard, starring Vince Vaughn, Kevin James, Jennifer Connelly, Winona Ryder, Channing Tatum, Queen Latifah and written by Allan Loeb.
Couples Retreat 2? Not quite, but the gags sure are reminiscent. I was hoping there would be a bit more drama to this dramedy, seeing as the jokes seem tired and overstated. But Vaughn gets to be Vaughn and the rest of the cast is promising, I guess it’ll come down to the script. I’m on board, for now.
4 couples go on a tropical retreat to fix their relationships. Hijinx ensue. Starring Vince Vaughn, Jason Bateman, Jon Favreau, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, and others. While the trailer isn’t outright hilarious, the movie may have some great comedy stored away. Based on casting alone. Ken Jeon is also featured.
Kristen Bell must only take scripts that bring her to island locations. Certain scenes, locales, and incidents seem ripped verbatim from Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Also, this film came out of an original idea by Vaughn. Which begs the question, four years after Wedding Crashers is Vince Vaughn still relevant? I don’t think he’s the comedy superstar so many pegged him to be.
