Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to Create R-rated Animated Feature

"This Is The End" At The 5th Annual Summer Of Sony

Funny men Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have received the greenlight from Sony Pictures Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures for an R-rated, full-length (no pun intended) animated motion picture entitled Sausage Party.

Set in a supermarket, the film will tell the story of an actual sausage that goes on a “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.”

The CG-animated film will be directed by DreamWorks Animation vet Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Greg Tiernan. All animation production will be done at Nitrogen Studios Canada in Vancouver. Sony Pictures will distribute the film worldwide.
Rogen and Goldberg wrote the story for Sausage Party along with their frequent collaborator and buddy Jonah Hill. Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir also contributed to the script. Rogen and Goldberg will also be producers on the film along with Megan Ellison and Conrad Vernon. Jonah Hill, James Weaver, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir will serve as executive producers.

 

Hannah Minghella, president of production at Columbia Pictures, said about the project:

“We’re thrilled to be back in business with Seth and Evan. This project has all the irreverent, insightful and risqué R-rated humor we have come to expect from them. Matching their unique comic sensibility with an animated film is a fun and inspired idea. We are confident Seth, Evan, Conrad and Greg will deliver one of the most memorable animated movies of all time.”

The filmmakers are planning for a 2015 release date.
