Tonight's NYC premiere of Louis CK's new movie has been cancelled

The New York City premiere of an upcoming film written, directed by, and starring Louis C.K. has been canceled on the verge of a New York Times Story breaking, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Two of the women, comedians Dana Min Goodman and Julia Wolov, told The Times that the comedian invited them back to his hotel room, where he asked them if he could take out his penis.

Last year, the comedian Roseanne Barr told The Daily Beast that C.K. was "about to get busted" for his conduct.

The Hollywood Reporter said the schedule changes were announced as The New York Times is preparing to publish a possibly damaging story about the comedian. A fifth woman anonymously accused the comedian of masturbating in front of her, which she said she allowed at the time because of the comedy world's lewd culture. "I Love You, Daddy" first premiered at Toronto International Film Festival and garnered criticism for its allusions to Mr. Allen, who has faced sexual abuse allegations from his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, and criticism for marrying ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

There are many kinds of awful apologies, but Louis C.K. might have offered the worst kind: A self-excusing non-apology in which you casually reveal all the other disgusting crap you've been doing. Schachner said the experience discouraged her from pursuing a career in comedy.

Arau spoke Wednesday at the premiere of Disney-Pixar's "Coco".

"Prison Break" star Robert Knepper is denying allegations that he forced himself on a costume designer in 1992. They told people about the incident (later described in a famous Gawker blind item) but felt pressure from C.K.'s powerful manager to fall silent, they told the newspaper. She says she managed to escape. "That's just not who I am".

Less than hour later, Kirkman issued more tweets to address "the men harassing" her since her initial comments, who say she had "recently implied" she did not believe the alleged victims and referenced the previously mentioned episode of her podcast. According to the report, all of Spacey scenes will be reshot. "Shameless" star William H. Macy will be replacing him.

The film was originally set to have its world premiere at the AFI Fest in Los Angeles on November 16 but was pulled earlier this week amid the sexual harassment reports surrounding Spacey.
