EXCLUSIVE: Writer Will Reiser used his own experiences with cancer to create the screenplay for Summit’s 50/50 starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anjelica Huston. Described as a “cancer comedy,” it is also full of gripping drama. The result has been early awards-season success — trophies for Best Original Screenplay from the Washington D.C. area Film Critics and the National Board of Review. It also has been nominated for an Independent Spirit Award and a Critics Choice Movie Award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association. Check out the full script here.
