James McAvoy is set to star as a 25-year-old who battles cancer (hopefully with lasers while riding a puma) in a comedy produced by Seth Rogan, Ben Karlin, and Evan Goldberg (AKA “The Jew Crew”). It’s based on screenwriter Will Reiser’s autobiographical novel I’m With Cancer. Rogen will also have a role in the film.
They aren’t planning to title the movie I’m With Cancer, which is good, because I don’t think the word “cancer” sounds like a comedy at all.
It will be the first pic Rogen and Goldberg have produced together. They penned the Judd Apatow-produced laffers Superbad and Pineapple Express and were executive producers on those films. They’re also exec producing actioner The Green Hornet at Sony.
Whoa. Hang on. “Laffers”? “Actioner”? Did this summabitch just say Superbad and Pineapple Express were laffers and The Green Hornet is an actioner? You can’t just make up words, you wizzlscatgiraffe. Go eat a bag of cancer.
Hmm, maybe I was wrong. Somebody getting cancer could be funny.
