Seth Rogen cancer comedy coming in September

By Sean O’Connell Can Seth Rogen make cancer funny?

We’ll find out on Sept. 30, which is when Summit plans to release the comedian’s newly-titled “50/50,” a terminal illness comedy-drama that also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Philip Baker Hall and Angelica Huston. Variety says the film, directed by Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”), will go up against Roland Emmerich’s “Anonymous” and the thriller “Dream House,” with Rachel Weisz an Daniel Craig.

“50/50,” which once was known as “I’m With Cancer” and “Live With It,” is pulled from the stories of real-life cancer survivor Will Reiser. It has been through title and director changes since Summit plucked it off the legendary Black List.

Now it’s heading to theaters. The Playlist guys gamble on “50/50” taking a bow at next fall’s Toronto International Film Festival, which makes a lot of sense. More on “50/50” as it develops.
