Top Three: Future Arrests in Development with Louis C.K.’s “I’m a Cop”

Creator of a show de rigueur, comedian and art-house junkie and lover of films with subtitles Louis C.K. will write, direct and star in an indie budgeted film project. Titled I’m a Cop, his third feature film will be produced by Hollywood titan Scott Rudin, Dave Becky and Blair Breard. While no production start date was mentioned, we’re imagining that the next piece of news will be the casting the mother role. Susan Sarandon would be a great fit.

Gist: A depressed middle-aged man (C.K.) who is a volunteer police officer living in the shadow of his mother, a highly decorated retired officer. When she dies, her continued influence forces him to become a real police officer, which is something he never wanted to be.

Worth Noting: They surely share a strong affinity for the 7th art, C.K. last directed 2001’s Pooty Tang with Chris Rock (Top Five director) as the star but that was pulled from his hands — an account of how that film was taken away from him can be found in a rather touching episode of the WTF Podcast.

Do We Care?: We dig the Louie C.K brand: style, voice and layered subtext.
