Here's What The Versace Family Thinks Of 'American Crime Story: Gianni Versace'

The Assassination of Gianni Versace American Crime Story

The Versace Family is Pretty Mad About FX's 'American Crime Story'

So it's likely United Kingdom fans won't have to wait too long to enjoy what is set to be one of the biggest shows of 2018.

Another American Crime Success Story?

Versace was the last person of five killed in a spree by deranged murderer Andrew Cunanan, a social climber and purported escort who was obsessed with glamour and fame.

Much of the show has been shot at the former home of Gianni, the Casa Casuarina, where he was shot just outside the gates.

Relatives of Gianni released a second statement to ET, slamming Maureen Orth's book, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U. S. History, which is the inspiration behind the FX mini-series. After producer Ryan Murphy defended the series on Tuesday, insisting that "it is not a work of fiction", the Versace family put out a second, longer statement on Wednesday condemning both the series and the "bogus" book Vulgar Favors.

She was also recently spotted having dinner with Triple H , which added fuel to these rumors. Let's take a look at five key takeaways from the January 8 edition of WWE Raw .

"Gianni Versace was a courageous and honest man, who engaged in humanitarian work for the benefit of others", the statement reads.

However, the show's producer Ryan Murphy told Variety magazine that Donatella Versace, Gianni's sister and the artistic director of the fashion house, had sent Penelope Cruz, who plays her in the series, a bunch of flowers the day before the premiere.

Donatella also said in the interview that among the mistakes in the book was the assertion that Gianni had been weak at the time of his murder because he had AIDS.

The title character Gianni Versace is played by Venezuelan actor Édgar Ramirez who has starred in The Bourne Ultimatum and The Girl on the Train. Ricky Martin is on board as Antonio D'Amico, a.k.a. Versace's longtime partner.

Dacha Polanco from Orange Is the New Black is also set to appear as a detective investigating the murder. The previous season used the Simpson case to explore issues of race in America, albeit in a loud, hectoring manner, and Murphy and his collaborators try to tie Assassination's disparate plot threads together by focusing on the difficulties of gay life in the '90s.

Yes - and it is thrilling.

Orth's main concern in seeing her book adapted was how the families of Cunanan's victims, including his former friends Jeff Trail and David Madson, Chicago businessman Lee Miglin, and cemetery caretaker William Reese, might take it.

The Versace family will issue no further comment on the matter.

Donatella, who now serves as vice-president of the Versace Group and is the brand's chief designer, owned a 20-percent share of the business prior to the Blackstone investment.

The trailer also teases the stunning aesthetic and emphasis on fashion which will be a major feature of the show.
