It sounds dirtier than it really is but Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, along with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, will be working on Sausage Party.
In the film, an epic journey begins when one sausage falls from a shopping cart and must venture through the supermarket, along with his new friends, before the Fourth of July sale. It’s animated but rated R so we can only imagine how raunchy this is going to be.
Based on the storyline, though, it sounds like it would be easy to create an app-based videogame as part of the promotion.
“We’re thrilled to be back in business with Seth and Evan,” said Hannah Minghella, president of production for Sony. “This project has all the irreverent, insightful and risqué R-rated humor we have come to expect from them.”
Of course, the studio has the utmost confidence in the pair; Rogen and Goldberg wrote and directed This is the End, which raked in an impressive $100 million. Annapurna Pictures will partner with Sony on the project that will be executive produced by Jonah Hill, who also wrote co-wrote the original story.
Sausage Party is expected to be released sometime in 2015.
