Sausage Party, Rogen, Rudd, McBride
For all the “brave” or “risky” movie projects Annapurna Pictures backs, this one might be their biggest dare so far. When was the last time there was an R-rated animated film in wide-release theaters for adults? Aside from the Ralph Bakshi films from the 1970s, the “Heavy Metal" movie in the 1980s and after 1999's "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut," the pickins are pretty slim (and we're talking theatrical, not DVD releases). Animated films are mostly the domain of kids movies, but Annapurna does have quite the project in Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s “Sausage Party.”

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in This Is the End
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have the kind of career that young comedy writers look upon with envious eyes. The two writer/producers have had an unprecedented streak, nimbly shifting from one hit R-rated comedy to the next, while occasionally stopping to expand their focus and bring in new collaborators (like "Warm Bodies" filmmaker Jonathan Levine, who they worked with on "50/50"). And for the most part these guys have stuck to their guns, honed their craft, and had tremendous success. We got a chance to speak with them at the South by Southwest Film Festival, where they debuted "Neighbors" to a thunderous response (read our review), and the unusually frank duo let us in on a whole battery of upcoming projects.

Way back when in 2010, we revealed that Seth Rogen was planning a flick called “Sausage Party,” (then called "Sausage Fest") and while that sounds like the kind of thing Seth Rogen just says, it has become clear that “Sausage Party” was more than an idle fancy over the past couple of years. It has a concept—it's an R-rated animated movie about a talking sausage who, with his other supermarket produce buddies, has to get back onto the shelves before Independence Day's BBQs hit—and it has actors—the voices of Rogen, frequent collaborator Jonah Hill and long-time voice actor Conrad Vernon. What it didn't have was the funding to give it the go-ahead...

The writer of films like "Superbad" and "Pineapple Express" was not only friendly and personable, but extremely forthcoming about all his upcoming projects, some of them with and without Rogen.
