Louis C.K. is just the king of doing things however he wants. After the release of his Netflix special 2017 a few months back we were wondering what his next project would be. C.K. has already gone on record that had he resurrected Louie, it would be a much different show. So, instead he secretly made a movie called I Love You, Daddy and its set to premiere at next month’s Toronto International Film Festival. It’s the comedian’s first time directing a film since 2001’s Pootie Tang, a film with a cult following but by all reports, didn’t leave a then unknown C.K. with great feelings about the Hollywood film industry as he lost a lot of creative control and final edits of the film with Paramount Pictures.
As for I Love You, Daddy, what is known about the film is that it was shot in 35mm black-and-white in New York last year. The story centers on C.K. as a “successful television producer and writer” named Glen Topher with a daughter names China, played by Chloe Grace Moretz. Rounding out the cast includes Rose Byrne, Helen Hunt, Charlie Day, John Malkovich, Edie Falco, and Pamela Adlon.
