The series - which also stars Ricky Martin and Penélope Cruz as Versace's sister, Donatella - focuses on the ensuing hunt for Cunanan who went on to kill four more people. 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 thanked McCartney on Instagram.
Interestingly, the statement was quite clear that the Versace family was not connected to either the show's adaptation of events or the book upon which parts of the season will be based.
The Spanish actress portrays the haute couture legend in Ryan Murphy's forthcoming TV series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, which chronicles the 1997 murder of Donatella's brother in Miami. "The company producing the series claims it is relying on a book by Maureen Orth, but the Orth book itself is full of gossip and speculation".
"It saddens (us) to see that among all possible portraits of (Gianni's) life and story, the producers chose to present the false and distorted version created by Maureen Orth", it added.
We'll just have to tune in when "American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace" premieres January 17 to judge for ourselves.
The thorniest issue seems to come from the source material, namely Maureen Orth's Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History, which the family claims they did not authorize in the first place. Cruz informed press that Donatella said that if somebody was going to play her, she was happy that it was me. "Instead, in her effort to create a sensational story, she presents second-hand hearsay that is full of contradictions". In the book, Orth claims to have information on a medical condition that Gianni was afflicted with, which she found out about from a person who allegedly reviewed his post-mortem test results.
"Gianni Versace was a fearless and honest man, who engaged in humanitarian work for the benefit of others", the statement reads. Our show is based on her reporting so, in that way, it is not a work of fiction, it's a work of non-fiction obviously with docudrama elements.
"Since Versace did not authorise the book on which it is partly based nor has it taken part in the writing of the screenplay, this TV series should only be considered as a work of fiction". The Versace family let the audience know that the upcoming series was not made or even conceived with their input and that it may even be in direct opposition to the real-life facts of the case.
