Summit Entertainment is teaming with Mandate Picture for North American rights to the Untitled Seth Rogen-James McAvoy comedy formerly titled I'm With Cancer.

According to Variety, Anna Kendrick and Bryce Dallas Howard has joined the cast.

The film will be directed by Jonathan Levine from a script by Will Reiser. The project will be produced by Rogen, producing partner Evan Goldberg and former "Daily Show" exec producer Ben Karlin.

McAvoy portrays a man who learns he has cancer and successfully battles the disease over several years. Character is based on the real experiences of screenwriter Reiser, who won his own fight with cancer in his mid-20s.

Production will begin shooting later this month in Vancouver.
