Netflix is parting ways with Kevin Spacey, the star and executive producer of “House of Cards.”
“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” Netflix said in a statement. “We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.”
“We have also decided we will not be moving forward with the release of the film Gore, which was in post-production, starring and produced by Kevin Spacey.”
“Gore” is a biopic of writer Gore Vidal staring Spacey that had had recently wrapped shooting.
Spacey has been accused by several men— including many who were underage at the time — of sexual harassment and assault.
Representatives for the actor recently said that Spacey will “seek evaluation and treatment” following the series of sexual misconduct allegations against him.
Spacey’s apology to actor Adam Rapp, who said Spacey made a sexual advance on him at age 14, sparked criticism when he chose to come out as gay in the same statement.
