Louis C.K. to Release His 15-Year-Old First Film Online

Louis C.K., no stranger to digital releases, will unveil his first feature film ever, “Tomorrow Night,” on Wednesday at noon EST on his website.

C.K. wrote and directed the black-and-white film in 1998 while still a struggling comedian and TV writer and, while it screened at Sundance and other film festivals, it never was picked up for distribution. It features then-unknowns who would go on to become big stars, such as Steve Carell, JB Smoove, Wanda Sykes, Conan O’Brien and Amy Poehler.

The comedian teased its release earlier this month on “The Late Show.” The “bizarre little indie film” follows a lonely photo shop owner (Chuck Sklar) who can’t get enough ice cream. Some of the crew that works on C.K.’s FX series “Louie” also contributed to the film, including director of photography Paul Kostner and production designer Amy Silver.

The download will be available in all territories for five dollars, the usual fare for the comedian’s digital releases, such as his HBO special “Oh My God.” Despite remaining virtually unseen for more than a decade, a trailer managed to appear on the web in 2009.
