Hmmm: Louis CK cancels movie premiere as NYT prepares story on him”

The premiere of Louis C.K.'s new film I Love You, Daddy set for tonight in NY has been scrapped at the last minute, Deadline has confirmed. Reps for the premiere cited "unexpected circumstances".

However, a source told the publication that a New York Times story concerning the comedian is about to break, and the cancellation was a precaution in the event that their report is damaging.

The comedian was also scheduled to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote the film, which was also cancelled.

I Love You, Daddy was written, directed, and stars Louis C.K. The film follows a successful television writer whose young daughter begins a relationship with an older filmmaker. He also financed the project and edited it as well. Tony Hernandez executive produced. The comedy is also filled with racial slurs, including the use of the N-word. "We're depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these attractive apartments and offices saying whatever they want", he said. "If you actually participate in a rumor, you make it bigger and you make it real". "You'll be making something that you're like, 'Is this OK for you?'" It depicts a 17-year-old who develops a romance with a 42-year-old played by Allen.

"I Love You, Daddy" will get a limited release on November 17 before going wide in the following weeks.

He added: "We're at the bleeding edge of 'That's not OK to do now, ' but those people are still around".

William H. Macy had been moved from Friday to Thursday, and John Mulaney is now on the schedule for Friday.
