"Netflix will not be involved with any further production of House of Cards that includes Kevin Spacey," Netflix said in a statement "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." added Netflix.
