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 of ACS will debut in 2018, following quickly on Katrina‘s heels.
Cruz will play Donatella Versace, the sister of the slain fashion designer, who took over the company following his death.
