Anna Kendrick Cast in Cancer Movie

Reuters reports that actress Anna Kendrick, fresh off her widely acclaimed breakthrough supporting role in Jason Reitman’s Up in the Air as well as her box office success in the Twilight franchise, is joining James McAvoy (Wanted, Atonement) and Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, Funny People) in an untitled dramedy on cancer.

Jonathan Levine, director of the Sundance hit The Wackness, is set to shoot the film written by Will Reiser, whose life the movie is based on, in Vancouver in February.

McAvoy plays a 25-year-old who learns he has cancer and spends years battling it. Kendrick will play Katherine, a young psychologist assigned to handle Adam’s case despite her lack of real life experience.
