In response to his predicament, Netflix decided to bring Spacey’s presence in the acclaimed show to a halt. This followed the resolutions of the online production house to shut down all their impending involvements with the 58-year-old actor, including their upcoming project Gore; Netflix’s 2018 film that he was supposed to star in.
