Sony Pictures Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures’ R-rated CG-animated feature Sausage Party will now be coming to a theater near you (at least in the U.S.A.) on June 3rd, 2016. The picture had previously been slotted for a 2015 release date.
The film, written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir from a story by Rogen, Goldberg and Jonah Hill, is a raunchy-by-design animated feature which tells the story of a sausage who falls out of a shopping cart in the supermarket and must get back to his aisle before the Fourth of July sale starts.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan, the animation is being done by Nitrogen Studios Canada, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. It features the voice talents of Rogen and Hill, along with Kristen Wiig, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, David Krumholtz, Nick Kroll, Michael Cera, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Bill Hader, Anders Holm, Danny McBride, and Paul Rudd.
