According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rogen also will have a supporting role in the film.
I'm With 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.
Nathan Kahane and Tendo Nagenda will oversee the project for Mandate, which is fast-tracking the project and hopes to go out to directors this month.
No production date has been set.
