I'm a Cop (W/D: Louis C.K.) S: Louis C.K.

Louis C.K., the comedian who has conquered the small screen with his low-key, angst-ridden FX show Louie, is returning to the land of movies.

And mirroring Louie, C.K. will perform triple-duties for the film writing, directing and starring in the indie Im a Cop, which is being produced by heavyweight producer Scott Rudin.

Rudin is producing with Dave Becky and Blair Breard, the latter an exec producer on C.K.s Louie as well as a couple of the comedians specials, including the upcoming Louis C.K. Live From the Comedy Store.

The script tells of a depressed middle-aged man 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.

C.K. last directed 2001s Pooty Tang, a Chris Rock comedy that he also wrote. The experience did not end well Paramount removed him from the movie during postproduction but in April he told The Hollywood Reporter that he had learned much in the intervening years and considered it a challenge he was ready to tackle.

I don't feel like I need anyone to tell me anything with a TV show because I know exactly what I'm doing, but I'd be arrogant to think that I can take someone's $8 million and just turn in a movie, he said. Movies are different. There's a permanency to them.

I was dealing with people every day whose pressures I didn't understand, and I wasn't very nice about how I said no to them. I put myself in a position I didn't have to be in. A lot of what makes this kind of stuff work is empathy.

Rudin is coming off working with C.K.'s pal Rock, having been a producer on the comedian's own return to directing and writing a feature with the well-reviewed Top Five.

FXs Louie, for which C.K. has won two of his three Emmys, returned for its fifth season in April.

Updated 4:20 PM, May 4, 2015 to reflect that Pooty Tang was not C.K.'s directorial debut.

Louis... yes, go on... C.K... WILL WATCH.

I'm in love with his TV show. Stuff like the Charles Grodin scenes or the Pamela romance... I haven't been able to put it into words yet. The show is perfect.

Fuck yes. Louis CK is by far one of my favorite comedians and I love Louie. Always down for anything he's part of.

To be honest, the plot description sounds exactly like an Adam Sandler movie.

Love Louis C.K. His appearances on Parks and Rec as a police officer were great.

Maybe we'll finally get to hear him say "your father is dead" appropriately.

Meh maybe a bit but Louis CK has much more talent than Sandler has ever had (and I actually don't hate Sandler). Seriously watch his FX series if you haven't. He writes and directs pretty much every episode in addition to starring and its one of the best things on television if you ask me. I think he's one of the greatest comics of modern times.
