After facing controversy in 2017, Louis C.K. is returning to film for the first time in five years. The comic/filmmaker not only directed and produced the project but co-wrote it with Joe List. The pair also star in the film, with List playing a recovering alcoholic and jazz pianist as he leaves NYC to visit his family in Maine during their annual Independence Day vacation, while Louis acts as his therapist. Fourth of July will have a limited theatrical release on July 1, 2022.
