Cary Fukunaga

Needless to say, "True Detective" director Cary Fukunaga is on a roll right now. As that eight-episode HBO series unspools with many a fervent admirer (and a few dissenters), Fukunaga has sold a six-figure pitch to Fox. The project is untitled and set during contemporary wartime; Nicole Riegel, a fellow Sundance lab alum like Fukunaga, is set to write it.

Fukunaga will both direct and produce.

Aside from helming all eight episodes of "True Detective," Fukunaga also has the solid 2011 "Jane Eyre" adaptation and brilliant debut "Sin Nombre" on his feature resume. Riegel's script "Dogfight" made it to this year's Black List.

    Love Fukunaga's Sin Nombre. Love Riegel's Dogfight. Can't wait to see what they do with this.
