You had us at Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. But toss "Sin Nombre" and "Jane Eyre" helmer Cary Fukunaga in the mix, and a crime series for them to play with? Just tell us when, and we'll be there. Brewing for the past year and picked up by HBO almost a year ago, it looks like "True Detective" is heading toward cameras.

You had us at Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. But toss "Sin Nombre" and "Jane Eyre" helmer Cary Fukunaga in the mix, and a crime series for them to play with? Just tell us when, and we'll be there. Brewing for the past year and picked up by HBO almost a year ago, it looks like "True Detective" is heading toward cameras.

Michelle Monaghan is the latest to join for what sounds like a potentially great series on the cable network, who have already gone ahead and ordered up an eight-episode first season. In the style of "The Killing" (albeit, with the promise that it will actually have a resolution), the story will jump back and forth between 1995 and 2012 to follow the story of detectives Rust Cohle (McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Harrelson) who are on the hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. Monaghan will play Harrelson's wife who "makes a hard decision that has long-reaching and devastating consequences."

Needless to say, this sounds awesome and we can't wait. No word yet on when it will air, but 2014 seems like a solid bet. [Deadline]
