Gore is an uncompleted American biographical film directed by Michael Hoffman, written by Hoffman and Jay Parini, and based on Parini's biography Empire of Self: A Life of Gore Vidal. The film stars Kevin Spacey as the writer Gore Vidal, joined by Michael Stuhlbarg, Douglas Booth, Freya Mavor, and Griffin Dunne.

Gore was planned to be released on Netflix. In November 2017, while the film was in post-production, numerous allegations of sexual harassment and assault were made against Spacey, and Netflix decided not to complete the film.



Principal photography on the film began in July 2017 in Italy, later filming at Gore Vidal's villa in Ravello, the Amalfi Coast.[1] Kevin Spacey was cast as the legendary writer, Vidal, in the Netflix original biographical film, with Michael Hoffman as director, and Andy Paterson as producer.[1] Later in August 2017, Griffin Dunne and Douglas Booth joined the film to play music composer Leonard Bernstein, and a young British writer, Jamie, respectively.[2][3]

On November 3, 2017, after numerous sexual assault and harassment accusations were levelled at Spacey, Netflix announced that they would not release the film.[5]
