Cancer can be funny! On September 20th, in their new movie 50/50, Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will show us how. Based on Will Reiser's real-life experience, 50/50 tells a story of a young man battling cancer and how those closest to him deal with his diagnosis.
50/50 is an upcoming comedy-drama film directed by Jonathan Levine, written by Will Reiser, and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen.
Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a 27-year-old man who is otherwise in excellent health, is suddenly diagnosed with cancer. He breaks the news to his girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard), his best friend (Seth Rogen) and his mother (Anjelica Huston), who is also dealing with her husband (and Adam's father: Serge Houde) who has Alzheimer's disease. Each deals with the news and subsequent treatment in different ways. In the middle of it all, Adam also seeks therapy from a young and inexperienced therapist (Anna Kendrick), assigned to him by the hospital, and befriends several older, wisecracking chemotherapy patients (Philip Baker Hall and Matt Frewer).
