Anna Kendrick has signed on to her first film following her breakout role opposite George Clooney in "Up in the Air."

Kendrick will join James McAvoy and Seth Rogen in the untitled Mandate dramedy formerly known as "I'm With Cancer." Director Jonathan Levine ("The Wackness") has taken over directing duties from Nicole Holofcener, who dropped out of the project because of personal reasons.

McAvoy stars as Adam, a 25-year-old who learns he has cancer.  The character is based on the real-life experiences of Will Reiser, who was diagnosed with cancer in his mid-20s and successfully battled the disease. Reiser wrote the screenplay.

According to Variety, Kendrick will play a young psychologist assigned to Adam's case.

The film begins production next month in Vancouver.

Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Ben Karlin are producing. Reiser is executive producing alongside Mandate president Nathan Kahane.
