Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen are in a new comedy together about one of the least funny things on the planet: cancer. This project has been in the works for several years, but the gears are turning and there is now an official title.
Live With It is the autobiographical journey of Will Reiser (Da Ali G Show), who seems to think that he’s as attractive as Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James McAvoy, who was originally cast. The film is about a 25 year-old who is diagnosed with terminal cancer and his best friend (Rogen), who gets him through it. Maybe he just gives him a few hits of Pineapple Express and he instantly feels better.
For the past several years, it has been without a title and often referred to as Untitled Cancer Comedy or just Untitled Seth Rogen Project. I’m With Cancer, was even tossed around.
A comedy about cancer makes me nervous. Let’s just hope it’s handled with care.
