    Summit Sets Seth Rogen/Joseph Gordon-Levitt Cancer Comedy, Retitled '50/50,' For Sept 30th

    Terminal illness and comedy: not always the easiest combination to market. While a film like "Terms of Endearment" was a colossal success, that was a quarter of a century ago, and a more recent example like "Funny People" showed how even the seemingly unstoppable pairing of Judd Apatow and Adam Sand...
