The move came as well-known names in comedy spoke out about Louis C.K. Perhaps the most notable reaction came from comedian Jen Kirkman. The film was scheduled for a nationwide November 17 opening, but its distributor is now holding off due to current circumstances.

That's because Adlon has worked creatively with Louis C.K. for years.

Adlon was a cast regular on Louis CK's popular FX show Louie, and he wrote and appeared on several episodes of Better Things, and has a creator and co-producer credit on the show. I am asking for privacy at this time for myself and my family.

FX, meanwhile, said it was "very troubled" by the allegations against Louis C.K. and said it is conducting an unspecified review in light of the accusations.

"He will no longer serve as executive producer or receive compensation on any of the four shows we were producing with him - "Better Things, ' "Baskets", 'One Mississippi" and 'The Cops'".

Immediately after allegations from multiple women against the comedian became public, HBO announced that it removed C.K. from its upcoming benefit event program. Both say C.K. had invited them to his hotel room during the 2002 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo.
