Netflix has canceled the release of a new movie with Felicity Huffman scheduled to premiere later this month.
The upcoming comedy Otherhood, featuring stars Huffman, Angela Basset and Patricia Arquette, will not be released later this month, DailyMail.com said.
The film, which chases three mothers who move to New York to surprise their adult children, has no future release date at this time. A company spokesman refused to comment on the question of when the film would premiere.
It's not just bad news for Huffman to be seen next month in the much anticipated miniseries When They See Us, which tells the story of Central Park Five.

Bad reputation: Huffman will still be in Central Park. Five miniseries When They See Us where she plays Linda Fairstein (Huffman on top as Fairstein)
Huffman plays Linda Fairstein in When They See Us, former head of the Sex Crime Unit at the Manhattan Procuratorate.
Fairstein persecuted the five youths, who were unjustly raped when a young woman jogged through Central Park when she was attacked late on April 19, 1989.
She can even be seen in the trailer, and throughout the clip her voice is heard: "Let's set up a blue army in Harlem. You go into these projects, and you stop every little crap you see, you bring in every child that was in the park last night. & # 39;
Fairstein has kept the guilt of the boys even after their charges were cleared when another man confessed to the crime and proved to be the DNA found on the scene.
Ava DuVernay, the Oscar-nominated director, confirmed that the miniseries will air on Netflix next month.
"I started a project on The Central Park Five in 2015. As a May debut, my delivery deadline was @Netflix on April 17. Many all-nighters to finish it," she wrote Monday afternoon twitter.
This comes one day after the actress has filed a guilty verdict for a single charge of postal fraud
However, DuVernay did not comment on Huffman or the scandal, even though she had thanked the actress for her involvement in the film before she was indicted in a single charge of postal fraud.
Netflix had been forced to deal with the consequences of another scandal last year after allegedly sexually abusing several male men by Kevin Spacey.
Following the news, Spacey fired from his House of Cards and shelved biopic Gore Vidal, in which he had just wrapped himself.
There have also been reports that Netflix fired Lori Loughlin for her role in Operation Varsity Blues last month
However, one source told DailyMail.com at the time that Loughlin only starred in Fuller House and had no contract with the rest of the cast.
On Monday, Huffman pleaded guilty to paying $ 15,000 to a false charity for her daughter to cheat on the SATs.
The actress, who is married to actor William H. Macy, released a statement Monday in which she said she was ashamed of the pain I caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community have.
The Emmy winner also said, "My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and I betrayed her in my wrong and profoundly wrong way."
There are about 50 people involved in a nationwide scam bribing people to colleges like Yale, with 14 parents making plunder agreements on Monday.
