Louis C.K.’s ‘I Love You, Daddy’ Dropped by International Distributors

After being canceled by The Orchard in the U.S. amid allegations of sexual misconduct against Louis C.K., the comedian’s film “I Love You, Daddy” is now being dropped by international distributors as well.

In France, ARP Selection has decided to cancel its Dec. 27 release of “I Love You, Daddy.” Speaking to Variety, ARP Selection’s co-founder Michèle Halberstadt said the outfit had chosen not to release the film because it has been “polluted” by the scandal surrounding its writer-director.

“No one, not even Louis C.K. fans, could watch the film the same way now,” Halberstadt said. “It’s impossible today to watch the film and appreciate the jokes without taking into consideration what just happened, because Louis C.K. put all of himself in every joke. His film is very personal, and he’s in nearly every shot.”

The movie has also been dropped by NonStop Entertainment in Scandinavia, Shoval Film in Israel, and Front Row Filmed Entertainment for Middle East.

”As much as we acknowledge Louis C.K.’s creative and performing talent…releasing the film in the Middle East and North Africa would mean condoning this type of behavior and forgetting the damage it has caused and still causes to the victims regardless of gender,” said Front Row. “Therefore, we, at Front Row, have decided not to release the film. This is the type of message we need to send to the whole system, which needs to reexamine its core ethical and professional values.”
