The New York Times just dropped an exposé of Louis C.K.’s long history of sexual misconduct allegations. Five women have come forward detailing C.K.’s actions, we won’t go into detail but you can read them here. Right before the article was published by the NYT The Orchard, the company behind Louis C.K.’s latest directorial effort I Love You, Daddy, announced the cancellation of the film’s New York City premiere citing “unexpected circumstances”. The comedian also cancelled his appearance tonight on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert with William H. Macy filling in last minute.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film may not even see the light of day at all given the circumstances. I Love You, Daddy had it’s fair share of controversy attached to it even before these allegations came to light. The film depicts the relationship between a 68 year old man played by John Malkovich and a 17 year old girl played by Chloë Grace Moretz. Other aspects of the film found troubling where the excessive use of the “N word” and some jokes that appear to be referential to these allegations that have been long rumored.
Also starring in I Love You Daddy are Charlie Day, Pamela Adlon, Rose Byrne, Edie Falco and Helen Hunt.
