American Crime Story: Penélope Cruz to Play Gianni Versace's Sister, Donatella

Cruz has been tapped to play Donatella Versace, sister of murdered fashion designed Gianni Versace, in the third season of the series, which has appropriately been titled Versace: American Crime Story. Edgar Ramirez has been cast to play Gianni, while Glee alum Darren Criss will take on the role of serial killer Andrew Cunanan. While the Hurricane Katrina-centric follow-up iteration to Murphy's acclaimed 2016 FX anthology series American Crime Story is circling a premiere date, the 2018-set third iteration has just procured an Oscar victor to play its central character in Penélope Cruz. He was one of several victims of Cunanan, who went on a multi-state killing spree before taking his own life in 1997.

It was reported in November that Lady Gaga was going to play Donatella, but that has turned out to not be true. But this news puts those rumors to rest. The series will mark Cruz's regular TV debut. Her credits include her 2009 Academy Award-winning supporting role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona as well as Oscar-nominated performances in Nine and Volver. Katrina will be the second installment in the series and will air in 2018.

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson are set to serve as executive producers on Versace: American Crime Story which is being produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. Murphy has also already confirmed the focus of the fourth installment: the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal. It ignited the careers of some of its actors, including Sterling K. Brown, and reinforced the positions of accomplished actors like Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr. Tom Rob Smith is writing the first two and multiple subsequent episodes, and Murphy, who received an Emmy nomination for directing the opening episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson, will direct the first hour.
