Inspired by personal experiences, 50/50 is an original story about friendship, love, survival and finding humor in unlikely places. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star as best friends whose lives are changed by a cancer diagnosis. Rogen also serves as producer, along with Evan Goldberg and Ben Karlin. Jonathan Levine directs from a script by Will Reiser. 50/50 is the story of a guy’s transformative and, yes, sometimes funny journey to health. It draws its emotional core from Will Reiser’s own experience with cancer and reminds us that friendship and love, no matter what bizarre turns they take, are the greatest healers. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Huston.
The film was originally going to be called I’m With Cancer, before it was announced that this was a working title. The film was later renamed as Live With It, and later, 50/50.
