    I Love You, Daddy marks Louis C.K.’s second film, coming 15 years after his ill-fated debut, 2001’s Pootie Tang. In 2015, C.K. announced plans to write, direct, and star in a film called I’m A Cop, but abandoned the project a year later. He’s instead focused his efforts on a web series, Horace and Pete, in addition to embarking on a standup tour and filming a new special for Netflix.
