Louis C.K. Abruptly Cancels the Premiere of ‘I Love You, Daddy’

louis-ckLouis C.K. has abruptly canceled the premiere of his new film I Love You, Daddy as well as a scheduled appearance on tonight’s Late Show with Stephen Colbert. According to The Hollywood Reporter, tonight’s New York premiere of C.K.’s film has been canceled due to “unexpected circumstances,” with sources telling THR that the decision comes ahead of a New York Times story that’s “about to break” and that the premiere was canceled “in case it’s damaging.” While C.K. has been trying to promote the film in recent months, it’s been largely overshadowed by the long-running rumors surrounding his alleged sexual misconduct, which Tig Notaro has been vocal about in the press. In September, C.K. responded to Notaro’s comments in a recent interview with The Daily Beast by saying “I don’t know why she said the things she’s said, I really don’t … I don’t think talking about that stuff in the press and having conversations over press lanes is a good idea.”

UPDATE: Variety reports that The Orchard, the distributor of the film, has decided to scrap the release altogether. The company released a brief statement today announcing their decision: “The Orchard will not be moving forward with the release of I Love You, Daddy.
