Penelope Cruz To Play Donatella Versace In 'Versace: American Crime Story'
Well this is exciting casting news! Oscar winner Penelope Cruz is set to portray Donatella Versace in Ryan Murphy's Versace: American Crime Story!
The Oscar winner is set to topline FX's Ryan Murphy anthology Versace: American Crime Story, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Versace — which will come after the franchise's second season, Katrina — will explore the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez). His killer, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss), committed suicide eight days later as Miami Dade police were on the verge of capturing the serial killer behind five slayings. The 10-episode third season will debut in 2018, following quickly on Katrina's heels.
Cruz will play Donatella Versace, the sister of slain fashion designer Gianni Versace, who took over the company following his death.
