All your Versace dreams have come true
Last year Ryan Murphy took his unique brand of dark campy anthology on a journey from the horror genre to true crime. American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson was critically acclaimed and won nine Emmy’s for its portrayal of the NFL player’s famously controversial murder trial. Murphy will be hoping to emulate that success with the second series of the hit show, titled ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace’ and dealing with… well… the assassination of Gianni Versace.
Penelope Cruz takes on her first EVER TV role as the dead icon’s sister, Donatella Versace, and is seen in the clip mourning in a rather fetching platinum blonde wig. Ricky Martin is Gianni’s blood-soaked partner and Ryan Murphy favourite Darren Criss is set to play serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The project is said to focus on Cunanan’s descent into instability and his previous murders, as well as the Versace family and their lives. The trailer is dripping with style and we’re very excited to see the show when it finally airs in 2018.
