From Entertainment Weekly:
The creative duo have agreed to make an R-rated 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,” according to a release from Sony.
Rogen and Goldberg co-wrote the script (along with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir) based on a story from the pair and Jonah Hill, who will executive produce. Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas and Friends) will direct.
Sausage Party is a project that Rogen and co. have been trying to get off the ground for years — Rogen and Goldberg were whispering about it at Comic-Con in 2010, and Goldberg once called it a “super dirty mockery of a Pixar movie.” Hill told MTV in 2010 that they envisioned it as something like Shrek, “If Shrek was R-rated, a very hard and aggressive R.”
