Louis C.K. to write, direct, and star in I'm a Cop
Louis C.K. is going big with his next project.
The comedian—and creator/executive producer/star/writer/director/editor of the highly acclaimed FX comedy Louie—will prove a triple threat on the big-screen by writing, directing, and starring in an indie film titled I’m a Cop.
Produced by Scott Rudin, I’m a Cop unspools the story of a glum volunteer police officer who has been overshadowed by his mom, a retired officer. Following her death, he winds up as an actual member of the force—something he’s not exactly enthusiastic about.
C.K.’s film credits include the not-well-received 2001 Chris Rock comedy Pooty Tang, which he directed and wrote. He also co-wrote two movies that Rock starred in: 2001’s Down to Earth and 2007’s I Think I Love My Wife.
The fifth season of Louie kicked off last month.
The Hollywood Reporter was the first to report the news.
