For his latest project, Seth Rogen is venturing into a new realm: animation. Based on the latest sneak peek (shown below), this comedy promises to be both hilarious and very worthy of its R-rating.
The movie, titled Sausage Party, revolves around one sausage (Seth Rogen) and his quest to discover the truth about what happens to food when it’s purchased at the grocery store. When his innocent hot dog friend is sliced down the middle, he and his gang of supermarket products declare war on humans.
The star-studded ensemble of voice actors includes Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton and Salma Hayek.
The movie is co-directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo who previously wrote the script for Superbad and Pineapple Express. Goldberg outlined his vision for Sausage Party back in 2014:
Sausage Party is an existential mock-Pixar movie, and we are very, very proud of it. It's our opus. It's like Mr. Holland's Opus! It's our take on a Pixar movie. It is very, very R rated. 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. It is about a sausage in a supermarket. He goes on an epic journey to get back to his isle before the 4th of July, and reunite with his pack of sausage friends.
The horror-comedy will hit theaters August 11.
