The documents show that the two-time Academy Award-winning actor had been filing trademark paperwork with USA authorities to acquire rights to "Presidential by Kevin Spacy".

The company will not release the film "Gore", which was in post-production and was produced by Spacey, its statement said. "We will continue to work with MRC during this hiatus time to evaluate our path forward as it relates to the production, and have nothing further to share at this time", was all the streaming service had to say in their statement on Thursday, Nov. 2.

MRC said in a statement, ABC7 reported: "While we continue the ongoing investigation into the serious allegations concerning Kevin Spacey's behavior on the set of 'House of Cards, ' he has been suspended, effective immediately".

"Star Trek" actor Anthony Rapp is the first person to step forward regarding the sexual harassment controversy surrounding Spacey.

House of Cards has streamed on Netflix and has been produced by the company Media Rights Capital (MRC). The production team has not yet disclosed a specific date as to when the show can resume its production, although Netflix is reportedly targeting post-Thanksgiving season to wrap up the shoot. Spacey also drew criticism when he used the moment to come out as gay.

Spacey's publicist cut ties with the actor on Thursday and it was not known who now represents him.

Netflix Inc severed ties on Friday with Kevin Spacey, one of its biggest stars and the lead in its popular drama "House of Cards", after a number of allegations of sexual misconduct against the Oscar-winning actor.

According to sources, Netflix has put "House of Cards" on hold to give writers more time to steer the final season of the show to a new direction that has less Frank and more Claire in it. Spacey had received best-actor Emmy nominations for all five seasons of the show, but never won the award.
