The movie wrapped in 2016, long before we all stopped pretending Spacey is creepy as hell, and distributor Vertical Entertainment was very conflicted about releasing the film at all afterward. They finally did so last week, saying they hoped the "distressing allegations pertaining to one person's behavior ... do not tarnish the release," which is an odd way to phrase that you couldn't afford Christopher Plummer's Spacey-Be-Gone fees.
So for anyone worried (legitimately so) that he would just get to come back and skeeve up our prestige dramas again, it looks like the Kevin Spacey Revival Tour isn't going to happen anytime soon. Sure, Mel Gibson is managing to somehow bounce back from behaving like everyone's most racist granduncle, but even at his slurriest, none of his movies ever garnered less revenue than your niece's lemonade stand.
