The producers involved with the creation of Netflix’s House Of Cards informed their cast and crew recently that the hiatus of the popular series will continue for now, but they hope it will resume sometime in the future.
In a letter published by The Hollywood Reporter on the 26th of November, they wrote: “we continue to work with Netflix with the hope of resuming production soon.”
Furthermore, the staff of the production will receive pay for the extra two-week hiatus from the start of the 27th of November until the 28th of December.
Celebrity Insider reported earlier that MRC and Netflix decided to suspend Kevin Spacey after the 58-year-old found himself embroiled in a sexual misconduct controversy when Anthony Rapp accused him of attempting to seduce him when he was a 14-year-old boy.
After Rapp told the world his story, more accusers came to the limelight to levy allegations at the Academy Awards winner resulting in several investigations in not only the United States but London as well.
According to a statement from employee’s of House Of Cards, Kevin’s behavior was “predatory” on the set and contributed to a “toxic environment.”
Subsequently, executives at Netflix fired him on the 3rd of November, and he is now seeking treatment. According to reports, Kevin was spotted at a rehab facility in Arizona.
As for who will replace the disgraced actor, a petition online has garnered around 43,000 signatures to have Kevin James take on the role of Frank Underwood. Fans weren’t ready to let the show go down the drain so quickly. Kevin Spacey is just one of many Hollywood figures at the center of sexual misconduct scandals, Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein, and many others experienced similar fiascos.
