From a “Saturday Night Live" monologue about racist chickens to an unannounced web drama about a run-down Brooklyn bar, Louis C.K. has always been capable of delivering surprises.
On Tuesday he pulled back the curtain on his latest one: “I Love You, Daddy,” a feature-length black & white film he has already shot in secret.
Louis also stars in it, playing a successful TV writer-producer and the father of a girl played by Chloe Grace Moretz. There aren’t any other plot details available for the film, which was shot on 35mm and will premiere in September at the Toronto International Film Festival. Other listed co-stars include Helen Hunt, Rose Byrne, John Malkovich, Edie Falco, Pamela Adlon, and Charlie Day.
Louis has been extremely busy since returning to the Stern Show in 2016. In addition to hosting "SNL" again, he dropped two comedy specials on Netflix, released a new season of his FX show "Baskets," and readied another season of his other FX show "Better Things" (which he co-created with Adlon). Though his TV credits are almost too long to list, “I Love You, Daddy” marks the first feature-length film Louis has directed since 2001's “Pootie Tang," starring Chris Rock.
