Louis C.K. to debut 'secret' film at Toronto film festival

Comedian Louis C.K. revealed Tuesday that he has directed his first feature film in 16 years. The black-and-white film, I Love You, Daddy, was shot "entirely in secret" and will debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

C.K. will star as a "successful television producer and writer" alongside Chloë Grace Moretz, who will play his daughter. John Malkovich, Helen Hunt, Rose Byrne, and Pamela Aldon will also appear.

C.K. has directed several comedy specials and TV shows in recent years, but this marks the first feature film he's directed since 2001's Pootie Tang. The Toronto Film Festival opens Sept. 7.
