Netflix cut all ties with Kevin Spacey amid more claims about his inappropriate behavior.
The company announced that it wouldn't make “House of Cards” as long as Spacey was involved. The news comes after at least three more men accused Spacey of inappropriate conduct including one who said the actor invited him to watch gay porn and gave him cocktails when he was 16.
Sources say production on "House of Cards" has been shut down for two weeks (and potentially longer) to give the staff more time to rework a final season that had been almost completely plotted out. The writing staff on the political series is actively reworking the sixth and final season to write the actor out of the show.
Writing Spacey out of "House of Cards" would not be a stretch. In the Michael Dobbs book that inspired the Netflix series, Frank's character dies. Meanwhile, speculation has been growing in the wake of the Spacey allegations that star Robin Wright, who plays Frank's wife, Claire, could become the show's centerpiece.
