An Amazon series from Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore and director David O. Russell is being scrapped because of Hollywood's sexual harassment scandal.
The actors and Russell released a statement Friday that they had agreed with Amazon Studios to stop work on the untitled series that was being produced by The Weinstein Co. Amazon said Thursday it was reviewing its ties with the company in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against its disgraced former co-chairman, Harvey Weinstein.
The decision comes a day after Amazon Studios suspended its chief, Roy Price, after a producer accused him of sexual harassment. Isa Hackett, the daughter of author Philip K. Dick and producer on the "Man in the High Castle" series, accused Price of making numerous crude comments toward her after a 2015 Comic-Con event in San Diego.
The statement from Russell and the actors did not mention either Weinstein or Price.
