The film, titled "Ce Soir-La (That Night)," was set to star Sandrine Bonnaire and Simon Abkarian as a single mother and a former Taliban member who meet after they rescue survivors from Paris' Bataclan venue where 89 people were killed during an Eagles of Death Metal concert," Deadline reported.

France 2 announced Thursday they were postponing the film after a Change.org petition created by Claire Peltier, a partner of one of the Bataclan victims, had gathered over 39,000 signatures asking the broadcaster to halt production.

Peltier, in the petition, calls the film "too painful" and that it should be renounced "out of respect for those who were lost and injured" and "out of respect for the service of public television."

France 2 released a statement regarding the film and noted that a premeire air date for the project was not set.

"The film, which is still being edited, has not been seen by the channel's management. France 2 has made the decision to postpone this project until the production has widely consulted all victims' associations," France 2 said.
