Back in September we found out about a new animated comedy from This Is The End writers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg titled Sausage Party.
But this animated comedy, as you likely suspected, is not one you’ll want your kids watching. The movie is a raunchy R-rated comedy that tells the story of a sausage who falls out of a shopping cart at a grocery store, and meets some new friends as they all embark on a dangerous journey trying to get back to their aisles in the store before the big 4th of July sale.
Now comes word of the movie’s voice cast, and, considering the movie comes from Rogen and Goldberg, most of the names should come as no great shock. The cast includes Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Michael Cera, Edward Norton, Nick Kroll, and David Krumholtz.
Sausage Party is written by Rogen and Goldberg, and will be directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan. Vernon previously directed Shrek 2 (and also voiced Gingerbread Man in the series), Monsters vs. Aliens, which also featured the voice of Rogen, and Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. Tiernan’s resume almost entirely consists of Thomas the Tank Engine movies, TV episodes, and shorts.
The movie is currently being planned for a 2015 release date.
