Anjelica Huston joins Seth Rogen and James McAvoy in cancer comedy
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Anjelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall have joined the comedy that used to be called I’M WITH CANCER. The film already has an impressive cast that includes Seth Rogen, James McAvoy, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard. Jonathan Levine (THE WACKNESS) is directing from a script by Will Reiser. The film follows a man (McAvoy) that discovers he has cancer and his ensuing long battle to fight it. It’s based off the real story of Will Reiser who also successfully battled cancer.
And no, I don’t know how they’re going to make that funny either. It helps that it’s written by someone that actually had cancer, so any comedy involved in the film should come from the right place. And with Rogen and McAvoy in the leads, I think this has a high potential to be a pretty good film. Oh, and I would also suggest they come up with a name for the film that doesn’t have the word “cancer” in the title. No reason to turn people away before they even buy the ticket.
