Sausage Party (2015) - Seth Rogan & Evan Goldberg, R-rated Animation



Sony Pictures Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures will partner on what is expected to be an R-rated animated film titled Sausage Party, written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg & Kyle Hunter & Ariel Shaffir, from a story by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg & Jonah Hill, to be directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens, Madagascar 3) & Greg Tiernan, it was announced today by Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures, and Hannah Minghella, president of Production for the studio, and by Megan Ellison. Annapurna Pictures and Point Grey Pictures are producing.

After Point Grey and Annapurna packaged the film and presented it to the studio, Sony agreed to co-finance it with Annapurna. The film will be produced by Megan Ellison, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Conrad Vernon. The executive producers are Jonah Hill, James Weaver, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir. Nitrogen Studios Canada Inc., in Vancouver, will handle all CG animation, design, production and post-production. Sony Pictures will release the film worldwide and the studio is eyeing a release date in 2015.

Sausage Party is a raunchy animated movie about one sausage’s 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.

Commenting on the announcement, Minghella said, “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.”

Rogen and Goldberg most recently wrote and directed the $100 million hit Sony Pictures comedy This Is The End and are currently working on upcoming films The Interview (also for Sony Pictures) and The Neighbors.

Andrea Giannetti will oversee the project for the studio along with Minghella. David Distenfeld will oversee the project for Annapurna.


From Seth Rogen's Facebook:

We started making our R rated, animated movie "Sausage Party." I think it may be some of out craziest work yet. I can't show anything from it yet, but our animators filmed us watching the rough animation from one of the scenes... and we found it pretty entertaining. Enjoy:

The video was good for awhile.

And then Rogan's fucking laugh got on my nerves and I had to turn it off.

And then I died.

i'm sure its obvious but i didn't see in the announcement if its a CG animated or not?

Also, when the article mentions those that will 'oversee the project for the studio' i assume that means they'll just make sure Seth & Evan aren't fucking around

Looks like it is CG.

Goldberg describes it as an “existential mock-Pixar movie.” He adds, “we are very, very proud of it. Its our opus. Its like Mr. Holland’s Opus! It’s our take on a Pixar movie. It is very, very R rated.” Don’t let his sentiment fool you, however, as he says, “I wish there were fifty Pixar movies every year. But listen, someone should take those motherf-ckers down a notch. Those high and mighty bastards. We’re mocking all animated movies, with a special eye on Pixar.”

Edward Norton, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll and David Krumholtz will also lend their voices to the raunchy animated comedy

The gang behind “This Is the End” is getting back together again, as the comedic quintet of Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and David Krumholtz will lead the voice cast of the raunchy animated movie “Sausage Party” along with Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton and Nick Kroll, TheWrap has learned.

Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan are directing the R-rated animated comedy for Sony Pictures and Annapurna Pictures. Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.

Annapurna’s Megan Ellison will produce with Rogen and Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures, as well as Vernon. Point Grey’s James Weaver will executive produce with Hill, Hunter and Shaffir.

“Sausage Party” follows one heroic piece of meat’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, the sausage protagonist teams up with some new friends to embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket and return to their aisles before the Fourth of July sale.

The Point Grey principals packaged the project before presenting it to Sony, which subsequently agreed to co-finance the film with Annapurna. Hannah Minghella and Andrea Giannetti will oversee “Sausage Party” for Sony, while David Distenfeld will oversee the project for Annapurna.

Vancouver-based Nitrogen Studios Canada will handle all CG animation, design, production and post-production on the film, which Sony will release in 2015.

The eight actors comprise a hilarious ensemble that should ensure the adult audience shows up to support an animated movie in theaters.

WME reps Hill and Kroll, who are respectively managed by LBI Entertainment and Mosaic. UTA reps Rogen and Wiig, who are respectively managed by Principal Entertainment LA and Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment. UTA also represents Norton, who recently followed agent Brian Swardstrom from WME. Cera is repped by ICM Partners and Thruline Entertainment, while Krumholtz is repped by the Gersh Agency and Untitled Entertainment. Franco is represented by CAA.

Paul Rudd must be joining because Ant-Man is on hold until they find a director or cancel the project.

Seth Rogan's laughter is one thing, but when he catches his breathe, he sounds like he's asthmatic.

Rogen's laugh didn't bother me, it was the douchebag in the white t-shirt who completely overreacted for the camera.

Doesn't voice acting in a lot of cases only take a few days?

I'm pretty sure Rudd has time to do this.
