For a while now Summit Entertainment’s cancer comedy starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Angelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall, directed by Jonathan Levine (The Wackness) has been.. untitled. But I received info that the current working title for this movie is.. LIVE WITH IT. Plot synopsis after this jump…
Based on an incredible real-life experience, LIVE WITH IT is a funny, touching and original story of friendship, love, and survival starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Angelica Huston. Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is an average guy in his mid-20s when he’s diagnosed with a rare form of terminal cancer. His family and friends – from girl-crazy best buddy Kyle (Seth Rogen), to insecure girlfriend Rachael (Bryce Dallas Howard) and overbearing but loving mom (Angelica Huston) – attempt to help him through this process in the best way they know how…which is reflected in some of the most hilarious and bizarre ways ever.
The story is based on Will Reiser’s true life about his struggle to beat cancer, centering on a 25-year-old who finds out he has the disease. Seth Rogen produces with his writing-producing partner Evan Goldberg (Superbad, Pineapple Express) and Ben Karlin (”The Daily Show With Jon Stewart“). It’s about two men dealing with “friendship, love, and survival – in no particular order.”
