“American Crime Story” director Ryan Murphy has once again teamed up with Matt Bomer. But this time around, he will not be playing a character in “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” as he will be going behind the camera.

According to TV Line, Bomer will be directing episode 8 of the upcoming season. This will serve as the actor’s directorial debut. Other details about Bomer and Murphy’s filming schedule are still being kept under wraps. But “Versace” is expected to premiere next year.

“The Assassination of Gianni Versace” will center on the 1997 murder of the famed designer at his Miami home by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Versace will be played by Edgar Ramirez, while Cunanan will be portrayed by Darren Criss.

In August, Murphy spoke with TV Line and shared some of the differences between Season 2 and Season 1, which was about O.J. Simpson. “More than the way he was killed, it’s sort of why it was allowed to happen. Versace… really did not have to die,” he said.

Murphy added that the murder was in part due to “homophobia at that time.” The director said that police officials refused to put up wanted posters of Cunanan, even though they were aware that he might have killed other people.

When asked how Versace’s story will be told, Murphy confirmed that the series will open with the designer’s death and will be followed by a series of flashbacks. “We’re telling this story backwards. The first episode deals with the murder itself, and then we go in reverse,” he said.

As for Simpson’s story, Murphy said that it was more of an “interior show” since they spent more of their time inside a courthouse. But in “Versace,” he, the cast and the crew went across the country to give the upcoming episodes “great breadth and a great scope.”

“Versace” also cast Ricky Martin as Antonio d’Amico, the designer’s longtime partner, and Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace, the designer’s sister. Set photos showing Martin, Cruz and the rest of the cast in full costume were also released online via Entertainment Weekly in June.
