After hinting earlier this month that he planned to self-release his directorial debut, "Tomorrow Night," comedian Louis C.K. is making good on that promise, announcing that the film will be available for purchase on his website this week.

During an appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman" Monday night, C.K. confirmed the news, telling the host that fans can visit LouisCK.net and download the movie for $5 beginning Wednesday at noon. The film, which was screened at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival, never found distribution and was never released.

"Tomorrow Night" boasts an impressive array of now-famous actors who were just getting started when C.K., then a writer for Conan O'Brien, was pulling the film together. It stars O'Brien, Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, J.B. Smoove, Todd Barry, Nick DiPaolo, Matt Besser, Ian Roberts, Wanda Sykes, and Robert Smigel.

C.K. showed a clip of the film on Letterman, which focused on the quirky owner of a camera store. The comedian admitted that the movie probably wouldn't appeal to everyone.

"That would be the tagline: It's not for everybody," C.K. told Letterman.
