Lady Gaga is reportedly starring as Donatella Versace in the upcoming "American Crime Story" season 3. The singer's supposed arc will revolve around the story of Gianni Versace's murder at his Miami Beach home. The 10-episode series will start filming in 2017.
The classic Versace/Cunanan story goes back into the spotlight where Andrew Cunanan assassinated four people alongside fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997. It also involved Cunanan's controversial suicide that happened eight days after the murders using the same gun.
"I was always very moved and freaked out by the Versace assassination, and I thought it was a really great story to do because it's a manhunt season," series creator Ryan Murphy said.
The anthology series is expected to be a game-changing title for Murphy especially now that he will be supposedly working with Gaga for the second time. The "Show Me" singer previously teamed up with the producer in "American Horror Story: Hotel" and "Roanoke."
Gaga played the roles of The Countess and Witch of The Wood in "AHS," giving her leverage and even a best actress award from the Golden Globe Awards. As for her alleged upcoming role in "American Crime Story" season 3, it is believed that her portrayal may not be as difficult as people think considering that Donatella Versace and Gaga have been close friends. One proof of this is the "Donatella" piece in Gaga's 2013 album.
Meanwhile, the "Poker Face" singer is in for a ride as she just released her fifth studio album entitled "Joanne" in October and will star in the Super Bowl halftime show in 2017. Fans can also stay tuned for Gaga's upcoming remake of "A Star Is Born" with Bradley Cooper.
Gaga has once again proven her ability to be versatile and amazing in both worlds, singing and acting. "American Crime Story" season 2's feature on "Katrina" will be in 2017, to be followed shortly by the "Versace/Cunanan case" arc.
