House Of Cards producers consider killing off Frank Underwood

House Of Cards producers are considering killing off Kevin Spacey’s character after the actor was hit with a number of sexual harassment and assault claims.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Netflix political drama, which first hit our screens in 2013, would end, but Variety now report that the show’s producers are mindful that there are 300 cast and crew members – some of whom have accused Spacey of sexual harrassment – who would be unfairly put out of work if the show was scrapped.

Production of House Of Cards halted on Tuesday (October 31), with talks of spin-offs already in the works.

One suggestion reportedly being discussed is that the show could kill off Spacey’s character, Frank Underwood, and instead focus on his wife, Claire – played by Robin Wright.

Producers are currently looking into contracts to see if they can legally continue without Spacey.

Last night Netflix confirmed that they would no longer work with the show if Spacey was still in it.

“Netflix will not be involved with any further production of ‘House of Cards’ that includes Kevin Spacey,” Netflix’s statement reads.

“We will continue to work with MRC [entertainment company, Media Rights Capital] during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the show.”
