In classic Louis C.K. style, the comedian-turned-auteur has announced the release of a feature-length film he made in secret earlier this year. The movie, entitled I Love You, Daddy, was shot entirely in black-and-white, and reportedly stars C.K. as a succesful television producer and Chloe Grace Moretz as his daughter, along with Helen Hunt, Charlie Day, John Malkovich and longtime collaborator Pamela Adlon. It will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this September. 

This isn't the first time C.K. has pulled fast one on his fans—last year, he dropped Horace and Pete, a highbrow ten-episode sitcom, completely out of the blue on his personal website. Needless to say, his knack for circumventing traditional production methods and disrupting normal release timelines has proved prescient. But what else, one wonders, does C.K. have in the works that we don't know about? A new season of Louie? A one-man show? A musical adaptation of Pootie Tang?

Please let it be a musical adaptation of Pootie Tang.

Sam Eichner likes literature, reality television and his twin cats equally. He has consistently been told he needs a shave since he started growing facial hair.
