Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey are heading down to New Orleans to film HBO's new series True Detective later this year, but Harrelson doesn't expect that it's going to be a peaceful experience. While the duo will play detectives searching for a serial killer on the series, in an interview with Details, Harrelson stated that the two will likely find themselves on the other side of the law.
"That does seem likely, doesn't it?" Harrelson said. "I imagine it will be for multiple charges: Drunk and disorderly would be at the top of the list, probably, and resisting arrest, no doubt. The good news is, we're playing cops, so maybe the New Orleans police will be more forgiving."
It doesn't seem outside the realm of possibility, does it?
If this is the first you've heard of True Detective, the series is slated to premiere on HBO next year. The series stars McConaughey as Rush Cohle and Woody Harrelson as Martin Hart, two detectives searching for a serial killer in New Orleans (it appears HBO wants to stick with the city, despite Treme coming to an end later this year). Created by Nic Pizzolatto -- a writer from The Killing's first season -- the series also stars Wood Harris (The Wire), Elizabeth Reaser (The Good Wife), and Alexandra Daddario (White Collar).
Sounds like a high-quality series. True Detective is slated for a preiere in 2014. Are you planning on tuning in?
