“This Is the End” co-directors Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen have been out doing the DVD & Blu-ray promo rounds for that comedy. In one interview, they spoke a bit about their recently announced animated comedy “Sausage Party”.
The story follows a supermarket sausage who goes on an epic journey to get back to his isle before the 4th of July, and reunite with his pack of friends.
Goldberg tells Movieweb: “Sausage Party is an existential mock-Pixar movie that we are about to make, and 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.”
Not that Goldberg has anything against Pixar: “I wish there were fifty Pixar movies every year. But listen, someone should take those motherfuckers down a notch. Those high and mighty bastards. We’re mocking all animated movies, with a special eye on Pixar.”
Conrad Vernon helms the project which is currently targeting a July 2015 release.
