'American Crime Story: Katrina' Gets New Source Material, Sarah Paulson Will Star

We have some exciting news for American Crime Story fans!

American Crime Story: Katrina, the planned second season of Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology series, is still happening, Deadline reports.

Just a couple weeks ago, director Anthony Hemingway let fans know that production was stalled on the new season, which was supposed to air at the beginning of 2018 followed by the third season.

Katrina will now get its source material from the book “Five Days At Memorial” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Sheri Fink.

“I’m confident it will air,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf said. “[Ryan] Murphy has a great idea for a pivot [and] now it’s in really good shape.”

The project will focus on “the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina at Memorial Medical Center in New Orleans, and the decision by medical staff, led by Dr. Anna Pou, to euthanize critically ill patients after being trapped in the hospital for days without power.”

Sarah Paulson will star as Dr. Pou. No other cast members have been confirmed yet.

Katrina will begin production in the spring and premiere in 2019 as the third season in the ACS franchise, while The Assassination of Gianni Versace will now premiere as season two.

“We’re trying to talk about a crime within a social idea,” Ryan said. “Versace, who was [Andrew Cunanan's] last victim, did not have to die. One of the reasons he was able to make his way across the country and pick off these victims, many of whom were gay, was because of homophobia at the time.”

Gianni Versace's Partner Comments on Ricky Martin's Bloody Set Photos: It's 'Ridiculous'

Antonio D’Amico, Gianni Versace‘s partner for 15 years before he was shot outside of his home in Miami Beach, Florida in 1997, is speaking out about American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace.

“The picture of Ricky Martin holding the body in his arms is ridiculous. Maybe it’s the director’s poetic license, but that is not how I reacted,” Antonio told The Observer. Ricky is playing Antonio in the new show, and Gianni is being played by Edgar Ramirez.

“I felt as if my blood had turned to ice,” Antonio said of what really happened that tragic day. “The house had stained glass windows so we couldn’t see what had happened from inside, so we had to open the gate. I saw Gianni lying on the steps, with blood around him. At that point, everything went dark. I was pulled away, I didn’t see any more.”

Antonio said he would speak to Ricky about playing him.

“It’s getting to know the small things about a relationship,” he added. “For example, Gianni was so ordered and focused at work but in his private life everything was disorganized. He’d leave the bathroom in a mess. At a certain point I said ‘enough’! And when it came to cooking, he didn’t even know how to [boil] an egg.”
