Back at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival, I was lucky enough to see THE WACKNESS; a film directed by Jonathan Levine, which I loved. Sadly the film never really took off after that but it hasn't seemed to slow down Levine's career. The director has signed on to direct the untitled Seth Rogen/James McAvoy dramedy formerly known as I'M WITH CANCER.

Also joining the production is Anna Kendrick, hot off her supporting role in UP IN THE AIR that may very well land her an Oscar nomination. In the film, McAvoy will play a man in his mid-20s who learns he has cancer. Kendrick will play a young psychiatrist assigned to his case despite her lack of real world experience. Rogen's character is unclear but it's said to be more of a supporting role. Levine hops on the film after original director, Nicole Holofcener (LOVELY AND AMAZING) left due to scheduling conflicts. Filming is scheduled to begin this February in Vancouver.

Extra Tidbit: If you've got the time (and means) on your lunch break, you can watch THE WACKNESS online at Netflix.

I loved Kendrick in UITA, so I have to say I'm a little disappointed that she's following that up with such a similar role (as far as it sounds in that one-sentence description). Totally psyched for Levine though.

Sounds great. Levine's definitely a solid director to watch. The Wackness brought back so many nostalgic feelings and reminded what real hip-hop is, not today's Lil Wayne/Kanye West bullshit. Plus this cast sounds great together.

The Wackness was one of those films that didn't wow me, but ultimately I enjoyed a lot and will watch again. I think that the 90s aren't appreciated like the 80s yet and it may have had too many pop culture subtleties for the youngins.
