Writing partners Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are huge horror fans; proof being in the hilarious apocalyptic comedy This Is the End, as well as AMC’s upcoming adaptation of “Preacher,” which writers have been raving about out of the SXSW World Premiere.
Now, out of left field comes their next project, an animated film about food that’s being billed as “the first R-rated CG animated movie.”
The trailer for Sausage Party stars off innocent enough, at least until the slaughter begins. F-bombs are dropped, potatoes are skinned, and “baby carrots” are killed in the name of food preparation.
In theaters August 12, 2016, “Sausage Party is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.”
The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars – Seth Rogen, 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.
