Seth Rogen is re-teaming with Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill to bring us an R-rated animated comedy called Sausage Party. This is the same group of talent that helped develop the apocalyptic comedy, This is the End. The movie is set up at Sony Pictures, and Megan Ellison is producing.
The film will be directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan who have both worked on kid-friendly films such as Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Madagascar 3. This definitely seems like it's going to be a very strange movie.
The story follows a sausage on its quest to “discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.”
It will be interesting to see what they do with an adult-themed animated movie like this. I have no doubt it will be vulgar and irreverent. I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out. What do you think about an R-rated comedy about a sausage on the adventure of his life?
