Louis C.K. Movie ‘I Love You, Daddy’ Dropped By Distributor


The Orchard has dropped plans to release Louis C.K.’s movie I Love You, Daddy, the indie distributor announced Friday. The company said it “will not be moving forward with the release” of the movie, which was set to open in select theaters on Nov. 17. The Orchard still holds rights to the film, but the situation is fluid, insiders say.


The news comes just a day after a NYT expose was published, in which five women claimed Louis C.K. sexually harassed them, with many detailing how he allegedly masturbated in front of them.

I Love You, Daddy, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival after C.K. made the film in secret, financing it entirely by himself and filming it over 20 days this summer in New York, was set to have its New York premiere on Thursday night but that too was scrapped just hours before the Times story broke.

“There is never a place for the behavior detailed in these allegations,” the company added. “As a result, we are giving careful consideration to the timing and release of the film and continuing to review the situation.”
