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.”
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.”
