In an August 2018 interview, Chloe Grace Moretz said that she didn't want the film to be released at all. Moretz stated that "I don't think it's time for them to have a voice", a clear reference to Louis CK's real-life behavior that led to the distributor cancelling plans to release the film in November 2017. The film's rights were bought back by CK (he gave back the same amount that Orchard Pictures had paid for original distro rights) and how it will be released in the future, or at all, is undetermined.
