Anjelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall have joined Seth Rogen, James McAvoy, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anna Kendrick in director Jonathan Levine’s Untitled Cancer Dramedy (previously called I’m With Cancer). The movie starts shooting in Vancouver any day now and it’s based on writer Will Reiser’s own experiences getting cancer in his 20’s. McAvoy plays Adam (the main character) and Kendrick will play Katherine, a psychologist who helps Adam deal with getting cancer. Bryce Dallas Howard apparently plays another love interest and Rogen plays McAvoy’s best friend. I’m going to take a wild guess and say Huston and Hall play McAvoy’s parents.
With this cast and the fact that Levine’s last film was The Wackness (awesome movie you need to see immediately), this is a film we should all be excited for. At least as much as you can be when it concerns cancer. More as we hear it. [Variety]
