Anjelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall have joined the cast of Summit/Mandate’s comedy formerly titled “I’m With Cancer.”
Pic starring Seth Rogen, James McAvoy, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard is due to start shooting later this month in Vancouver.
The film will be directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Will Reiser. Project is produced by Rogen, producing partner Evan Goldberg and former “Daily Show” exec producer Ben Karlin. Reiser is exec producing along with Mandate Pictures president Nathan Kahane.
McAvoy portrays a man who learns he has cancer and successfully battles the disease over several years. Character is based on the real experiences of screenwriter Reiser, who won his own fight with cancer in his mid-20s.
