The New York premiere of Louis C.K.’s new film “I Love You, Daddy” has been canceled mere hours before it was set to take place at the Paris Theatre with event reps citing “unexpected circumstances”.
THR says that a New York Times story on the comedian is about to break and the premiere was canceled in case it’s damaging.
The film tells the story of a successful TV writer-producer that attempts to stop his 17-year-old daughter’s (Chloe Grace Moretz) growing admiration and relationship with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). Pamela Aldon, Rose Byrne, Charlie Day, Edie Falco and Helen Hunt co-star.
It has generated controversy following its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September over its content including use of language and several jokes about child rape.
The industry is on tenterhooks at the moment due to the ongoing sexual harrassment allegations and scandals that keep coming out. In the last 48 hours alone, actors like Jeffrey Tambor, Ed Westwick, Steven Seagal, Charlie Sheen and Jeremy Piven have had allegations hurled at them which have been met with adamant denials, though some are being put under investigation.
