The fashion world was rocked by the murder of Gianni Versace in 1997. Following news that the gruesome crime will be revisited for the third installment of American Crime Story, the Milan luxury brand has denied any involvement in the project.
The fashion house says that it had “neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming series about Versace," according to the LA Times. "The series should only be seen as a work of fiction.”
Deadline shares that Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story will be based on the book Vulgar Favors. Andrew Cunanan killed the famed designer at his Miami mansion and shot himself days later on a houseboat.
The Versace story follows the Emmy-winning series People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Before this, an American Crime series about Hurricane Katrina is expected to air in 2017. Actors for the 10-part Versace series have not been announced but the Internet is buzzing that Lady Gaga should play Donatella Versace.
