Shots Ring Out in FX’s First ‘Versace: American Crime Story’ Teaser
American Horror Story may be using real-life terror for its Season 7 Cult, but nothing so true to life as sibling series American Crime Story. See for yourself in our first teaser for The Assassination of Gianni Versace, picking up from The People v. O.J. Simpson in 2018.
Much as the initial O.J. teasers set the mood with scenes of the infamous house, so too does our first teaser for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story (Versace would have been fine, guys) take us to the fashion designer’s iconic estate. We don’t meet any of the cast just yet, but likely won’t have to wait long into 2018 for an official premiere.
Season 3 of American Crime Story will feature Point Break star Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace himself, Glee and Flash star Darren Criss as his killer, Andrew Cunanan, Penelope Cruz as sister Donatella Versace and Ricky Martin as Versace’s partner Antonio D’Amico. Additionally, New Girl star Max Greenfield also appears in an unknown role, along with Masters of Sex star Annaleigh Ashford, and American Horror Story alum Finn Wittrock as Jeff Trail, Cunanan’s first victim. Season 3 will follow the July 1997 murder – its first two episodes written by Tom Rob Smith – drawn from Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors.
It could be some time before The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story releases actual footage, so stay tuned.
