Louis C.K.’s Movie Premiere Axed Ahead of NY Times Report

It appears another shoe may drop in Hollywood.

The New York premiere of comedian Louis C.K.’s new film I Love You, Daddy was abruptly canceled just hours before it was supposed to take place. And according to The Hollywood Reporter, the reason was a New York Times article that was about to break and the film studio feared it could be damaging.

And as sexual harassment allegations have swirled around Louis C.K. for years — along with the recent rash of bombshell reports detailing harassment and assault by other Hollywood figures — one can take an educated guess as to what is contained in that Times report.

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. The drama-comedy also stars Chloë Grace Moretz, John Malkovich, Rose ByrneCharlie Day, Edie Falco, and Helen Hunt.

The comedian was also scheduled to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote the film, which was also cancelled. This follows The Late Show‘s last-minute cancellation of a sit-down with Jeremy Piven, who is currently facing sexual harassment allegations of his own.

Last month, Amazon Studios canceled the premiere of Woody Allen‘s latest film Wonder Wheel after top executive Roy Price was suspended and later fired for alleged sexual harassment.
