Comedian Louis C.K. is set to write, direct and star in the indie film “I’m A Cop” which Scott Rudin is set to produce.
The story follows a depressed middle-aged man who is a volunteer police officer living in the shadow of his mother, a highly decorated retired officer.
When she dies, her continued influence forces him to become a real police officer, which is something he never wanted to be.
The “Louie” star will also produce alongside Dave Becky and Blair Breard. Louis C.K. previously directed the 2001 Chris Rock comedy “Pooty Tang” but was removed from the movie during post-production.
