The Orchard says it has canceled Thursday's premiere of "I Love You, Daddy," starring Louis C.K., Chloe Grace Moretz and John Malkovich.
The gala celebrating it was to take place at New York's Paris Theatre. The film is set for theatrical release on Nov. 17.
"Due to unexpected circumstances, tonight's event for I Love You, Daddy has been canceled," the distribution company said in an email to Variety.
"On behalf of The Orchard, please accept our apologies. We're incredibly sorry for any inconvenience."
The Hollywood Reporter said the schedule changes were announced as The New York Times is preparing to publish a possibly damaging story about the comedian.
