A recent report on the Latino Post - usually pretty good with their exclusives - suggested Brad Pitt is close to inking a deal to star in the second season of True Detective. Both lead roles are up for grabs in Nic Pizzolato's drama series following the exit of Woody Harrelson and McConaughey and Pitt is the main target. 

Pizzolato remains silent on plot speculation though he did confirm that it will not be about solving a murder mystery and is the story of a detective chasing an elusive criminal. Other speculated actors and actresses include Edward Norton, Sandra Bullock and Amy Adams. True Detective season 2 is set to premiere in 2015.
