After finding a lot of success with his hit FX TV series Louie, Louis C.K. is heading back to the big screen, writing, directing and starring in the indie comedy I'm a Cop. The comedian hasn't directed a feature since the 2001 comedy Pootie Tang, which he was actually removed from by Paramount during the post-production process. He made his feature directorial debut with the 1998 movie Tomorrow Night, which the comedian released for purchase on his official website last year.
I'm a Cop centers on a middle-aged man who serves as a voluntary police officer, although he has spent his life living in the shadows of his mother, a legendary cop. Upon her death, her continued influence over him forces the man to pursue an actual career as a police officer, even though that is never something he wanted to do. No other cast members have been confirmed for the comedy at this time.
Scott Rudin is producing with Dave Becky and Blair Breard. The project isn't set up at a studio yet, and it isn't known when production may begin. When he's not writing, directing, producing and starring in Louie, Louis C.K. has found time to star in recent movies such as Blue Jasmine and American Hustle. He will next be seen in the biopic Trumbo.
