Joseph Gordon-Levitt joins ‘Cancer’ cast, filming begins next week in Vancouver

Golden Globe Awards 2010 - RED CARPET

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is joining Seth Rogen in his untitled comedy, also known as I’m With Cancer. Levitt is replacing James McAvoy “as he has left the production due to unrelated circumstances beyond his control.”

In response to the McAvoy leaving the project, Rogen said, “It’s incredibly unfortunate that circumstances outside of everyone’s control have taken James away from the project, but, with James’s blessing, we were able to have Joseph step in to take on the role of Adam. We all look forward to working with James in the future.”

The film, which was suppose to begin filming last week during the Olympics, will now begin shooting March 8 in Vancouver.
The movie also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, Anjelica Huston and Philip Baker Hall.

The untitled comedy is “a funny, touching, and original story of friendship, love, and survival — in no particular order.”
