We will continue to work with MRC [Media Rights Capital] 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".
I'm glad that Netflix has put its foot down and insisted that Spacey have no involvement with the upcoming season, while still leaving room for the show to continue without him.
It was a stunning fall for an actor, who chilled and thrilled audiences in equal measure in roles such as corrupt United States president Frank Underwood in House of Cards, a midlife-crisis-ridden father in American Beauty, and as a serial killer in Seven.
If the show is not able to continue production, Netflix will be exploring options of a possible spinoff of House of Cards.
And MRC is "deeply troubled" by the allegations and have implemented "an anonymous complaint hotline, crisis counselors, and sexual harassment legal advisors for the crew".
One of the accusers said the actor plied him with alcohol and asked him to watch homosexual pornography with him when he was 16-years-old.
Spacey came out as gay in his public apology to Rapp, and members of the industry - and fans - called him out for it.
Thirty years ago, Spacey was a 27-year-old actor in NY.
Spacey, who plays the show's male lead, Frank Underwood - a role that won him a Golden Globe in 2015 - has been at the center of a sexual abuse controversy that erupted in recent weeks.
Weinstein has denied any non-consensual relations.
"We were all involved in keeping it quiet".
The Old Vic theater, where Spacey served as artistic director between 2004 and 2015, distanced itself from the actor. When the staffer told Spacey he wasn't comfortable with the situation, he said Spacey became "visibly flustered" and left the set for the rest of the day.
Late Thursday evening, eight people came forward anonymously to accuse Spacey of creating a "toxic" work environment on the set of House of Cards.
