During a panel at Entertainment Weekly's PopFest over the weekend, Ryan Murphy hinted that fans might be right in speculating that Lady Gaga would be perfect for the role of Donatella Versace in the upcoming 3rd season of American Crime Story.
The season of the anthology series is set to revolve around the 1997 murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
When the PopFest panel moderator suggested that Lady Gaga would be great for the role, Murphy gave a knowing grin and said, "Ya think?"
Murphy explained that he wanted to focus the 3rd season on Gianni's murder because the serial killer who did it remained undetected by authorities until his own suicide.
“The tragedy of the Versace murder was that it should not have happened. He should have been caught by then,” Murphy explained. “But he wasn’t caught because he was targeting gay people, and people didn’t care. That’s why Gianni Versace was killed, for the most part.”
Season 2 and 3 will film simutaneously with seperate groups of actors. The next season will focus on Hurricane Katrina.
