Seth Rogen Producing Cancer Comedy?


Mandate Pictures has picked up I’m With Cancer, a comedic autobiographical spec script written by Will Reiser that Seth Rogen will produce with his writing-producing partner Evan Goldberg and Ben Karlin (“The Daily Show With Jon Stewart”).

Rogen also will have a supporting role in the film.

“Cancer” is Reiser’s account of his struggle to beat cancer, with the story centering on a 25-year-old who finds out he has the disease.

The film reteams Rogen and Goldberg with Mandate, for whom they are writing and producing the end-of-the-world comedy Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse. The duo are working on Sony’s The Green Hornet.
