Ouch, Louis CK, career OVER! Despite the first film making $875.4 million worldwide Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment are going another direction. One that doesn’t involve actors with sexual harassment claims…
It appears family films and sexual harassment are NOT a good mix, right Louis CK?
The Secret Life of Pets 2 is set to arrive in the summer of 2019, but in light of recent events, that sequel will be missing one of the original film, the voice of Louis CK. Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment made the decision to distance themselves from sex offenders and family entertainment.
Louis CK has been removed as one of the voice stars of The Secret Life of Pets 2 following his admission to committing several acts of sexual misconduct throughout his career.
If you recall, the comedian played Max, the Jack Russell Terrier who got caught up in a series of misadventures in New York City along with his unwelcome new mutt companion Duke (Eric Stonestreet). Max the animated dog will still be in the film, he will just be voiced by a another actor.
Deadline revealed Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment don’t want him anywhere near their successful family film franchise.
As of yet, the actor replacing Louis C.K. in Pets 2 is still unknown. In addition, we have no word if the story will be modified in any way to make his character less prominent.
Louis C.K.’s career likely won’t be resurrected anytime soon since his publicist, manager and agent have all dropped him from their client roster.
