Ryan Murphy has cast his Donatella Versace.
Penélope Cruz is set to play the Italian fashion designer in the upcoming FX anthology series, American Crime Story.
Gianni Versace in Versace: American Crime Story, is about the murdered fashion designer.
Edgar Ramirez has been cast as Gianni with Darren Criss signed on to play serial killer Andrew Cunanan in the miniseries, which is based on the book Vulgar Favors by Maureen Orth.
Versace is expected to be the third edition of the franchise that launched to acclaim with The People vs. O.J. Simpson last year and will continue with Katrina in 2018. The Versace edition is also expected to air in 2018.
Lady Gaga was considered for the role but she’s extremely busy with her music and other projects.
I remember when this happened but don’t know if I see a whole series behind it. What are your thoughts?
