Irish American actress Anjelica Huston has signed on to star in Anna Kendrick's follow up movie from her Oscar Nominated "Up in the Air."

Huston will join cast, Philip Baker Hall, James McAvoy and Seth Rogen in filming the quirky movie in Vancouver in the next few months.

The movie, directed by "The Wackness's" Johathan Levine, is a comedy about a twentysomething (McAvoy) who discovers he has cancer and his ensuing battle to fight it.

It’s based on the real story of Will Reiser, (he writes the script) who also successfully battled cancer.

It is unclear what part Huston will be playing.
