Louis C.K.’s first directorial effort in 16 years is coming to theaters.

The Orchard has announced that C.K.’s black-and-white comedy I Love You, Daddy will hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 17, before expanding nationwide Dec. 1. The comedian directed, co-wrote, and stars in the film, which premiered earlier this month at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Daddy is C.K.’s first film directorial effort since 2001’s Pootie Tang, and he stars as TV writer Glen Topher. Chloe Grace Moretz plays his spoiled teenage daughter, China, who strikes up a friendship with an older (and notoriously lecherous) director played by John Malkovich. After the film premiered at Toronto, Daddy drew multiple comparisons to the allegations against Woody Allen.

C.K. secretly shot the film this summer, and it also stars Rose Byrne, Edie Falco, Charlie Day, Pamela Adlon, Helen Hunt, and Ebonee Noel.
