With ‘House of Cards’ production halted, what’s next for Kevin Spacey?
(CNN)-Production on the sixth and final season of “House of Cards” has been halted after star Kevin Spacey was accused of sexual assault by an actor who claims he was a minor at the time of the alleged incident.
Netflix and Media Rights Capital, which produces the series, confirmed the move in a joint statement issued Tuesday.
“MRC and Netflix have decided to suspend production on ‘House of Cards’ season six, until further notice, to give us time to review the current situation and to address any concerns of our cast and crew,” the statement read.
On Sunday, actor Anthony Rapp told BuzzFeed about an alleged encounter with Spacey at a party in 1986. At the time, Rapp was 14 years old and Spacey, according to Rapp, made a sexual advance toward him.
Spacey issued a statement late Sunday, claiming he did not recall the incident but apologized for what he said would have been “inappropriate drunken behavior.”
