Netflix: No More ‘House of Cards’ With Spacey Involved

Streaming giant Netflix will no longer produce any episodes of its tentpole series, House of Cards, as long as actor Kevin Spacey is involved, a Netflix spokesperson told The Daily Beast on Friday. “Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey,” the spokesperson said. “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.” Production had just started on the show’s sixth season, which was announced as its final season after Spacey was accused of making a sexual advance on actor Anthony Rapp when the latter was 14 years old. Since then, Spacey has been hit with a torrent of sexual harassment complaints from men on- and off-set.
