Much like her intricate couture designs, the casting of Dontatella Versace for an upcoming Lifetime movie has been rather dramatic.
After many rumors, The Hollywood Reporter claims that producers have chosen Gina Gerson for the biopic, an actress previously known for her role in "Showgirls."
As for the film itself, it centers on Donatella's prior substance abuse problem, as well as her growth within the company after the murder of her brother, Gianni.
You can catch "House of Versace" and an hour-long documentary about Gianni, called "Versace: Behind the Headlines" when they premiere on the network on October 5.
