Can Oscar-winning actress Penelope Cruz pass for fashion designer Donatella Versace? Maybe with a platinum-blonde wig.

Cruz, who won an Oscar in 2009 for Vicky Cristina Barcelona, has been tapped to play Versace in the third installment of American Crime Story, Ryan Murphy's FX limited series franchise. Versace will focus on the 1997 murder of Donatella's brother, Gianni, in Miami.

Edgar Ramirez is set to play Gianni, while Darren Criss (Glee) will portray serial killer Andrew Cunanan.  Filming is set to begin in April and the series is expected to air in 2018, after a second installment of Crime Story centered on Hurricane Katrina.

The first installment of Murphy's American Crime Story revolved around the O.J. Simpson case and earned several Emmy awards including lead acting honors for Courtney B. Vance and Sarah Paulson and a supporting actor prize for Sterling K. Brown.
