The Orchard has decided to drop the release of Louis C.K.’s “I Love You, Daddy” in light of sexual misconduct accusations that surfaced against the comedian on Thursday.

“The Orchard will not be moving forward with the release of ‘I Love You, Daddy,'” the indie distribution company announced Friday morning. The film, which the company bought for $5 million at the Toronto Film Festival, was due to open on November 17.

The scheduled New York premiere of “I Love You, Daddy” was canceled Thursday night, as well as C.K’s appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” The comedian has also since been dropped from HBO’s upcoming “Night of Too Many Stars.”
