The ‘I Love You, Daddy’ screening was abruptly canceled just hours before it was scheduled to start.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the New York city premiere of comedian and accused Not A Good Person Louis C.K.’s upcoming film, “I Love You, Daddy,” has been canceled. The event was to be held at the Paris Theatre, and will no longer take place. Premiere reps told THR, “unexpected circumstances.”
A source tells The Hollywood Reporter that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break, and the premiere was canceled in case it is damaging. His planned Friday appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert was also canceled, with William H. Macy taking his place on the CBS show.
Louis C.K. wrote, directed and stars in I Love You, Daddy. The comedy-drama tells the story of a successful TV writer-producer that attempts to stop his 17-year-old daughter’s (Chloe Grace Moretz) growing admiration and relationship with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). The film also stars Pamela Aldon, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day, Edie Falco and Helen Hunt.
C.K. shot the film entirely in secret last June. He also financed the project and edited it as well. 3 Arts’ Dave Becky produced the film alongside C.K., Chatman, Ryan Cunningham and John Skidmore. Tony Hernandez executive produced.
The film has generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September. TIFF programmers screened and gave I Love You, Daddy a world premiere after C.K. rang surprised Toronto organizers to know the film actually existed.
