Can Hollywood Please Stop Making Movies About Cancer?

Written by , Posted in General

James Mcavoy pulled out of Seth Rogan’s new film, ‘I’m With Cancer,’ due to scheduling conflicts, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is taking his place.  Here’s my question: does anyone actually want to see this film?  Gordon-Levitt will play a young cancer victim.  It’s based on the life of screenwriter Will Reiser.  How many movies about cancer can Hollywood make?  Here are some ones that immediately come to mind: Stepmom; Life as a House; A Walk to Remember; My Sister’s Keeper; Sweet November; The Family Stone; and the list goes on and on.  Maybe I am just cold-hearted.
