Seth Rogen comedy “I’m With Cancer” receives name change

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Will a name change make cancer any funnier?

That has to be the concern of director Jonathan Levine, as news breaks that the title of his upcoming cancer comedy — previously known as “I’m With Cancer” — has been changed to the semi-generic, less-challenging “Live With It,” RamaScreen.com reports.

The title, alone, isn’t going to lure people to the theater … but Levine’s spectacular cast might. The amazing Joseph-Gordon-Levitt reportedly has been tapped to replace James McAvoy in the lead role of this adaptation of Will Reisner’s novel, about a twenty-something who is stricken with the disease. The ensemble is expected to include Seth Rogen, Angelica Huston, Philip Baker Hall, and “Twilight” veterans Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard.

According to The Playlist, the film focuses on the relationship between best friends Gordon-Levitt and Rogen. We’re hoping it’s funnier than Rogen’s other death-and-dying comedy, “Funny People.” The Playlist estimates that we’ll finally see this film in 2011. And with this cast in place, we certainly can “Live With” a title change.
