Seth Rogen On His Cancer Dramedy 50/50

| Filed under: Film FlickersPerezTVSeth RogenJoseph Gordon-Levitt

We're still not 100% sure what to make of this movie, but it definitely looks good.

During a recent interview, Seth Rogen opened up about his upcoming cancer dramedy 50/50 (above), which co-stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Here's what Seth had to say about the subject matter of 50/50:

"…It is about something somewhat serious, but I really think it's as funny as any of our movies. That's what is really interesting about it to me. We'd always talk about how it's not a creative challenge to take something depressing and make something depressing out of it. To us, it was much more interesting to take something that's inherently depressing and try to make something really, really funny out of it."

"To me, the movies that are about something you generally don't want to watch but you keep watching for decades to come, the only reason you do that is because they're funny. A movie like Dr. Strangelove, no one wants a movie about f—ing nuclear war, but if it's funny, you keep watching it. Tonally, that's what we were trying to do."

And here's Seth on marketing a cancer dramedy:

"I think it's challenging, but I know people like the movie, and if the movie was in any way disappointing, we would really have a challenge. But because it's a satisfying movie and ultimately not depressing and our trailers have been good; it's no bigger challenge than some of the other movies we've done. At the time, a weed action movie was not easy to market."

Sounds great, Seth! We give you credit for taking on this challenge, and we'll definitely check this one out when it gets released later this month!

Will U go see 50/50? Do U think it will be a successful movie???
