The This Is the End Blu-ray and DVD are in stores today, and what better way to celebrate and promote the release of summer's funniest comedy than with more info about the next project from writing and directing duo Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen?
http://movieweb.com/seth-rogen-evan-goldberg-and-jonah-hill-team-up-for-sausage-party/Announced last month, Sausage Party is a new animated comedy written by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg & Kyle Hunter & Ariel Shaffir, from a story by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg & Jonah Hill, and it will be directed by Conrad Vernon.
The story follows a Sausage who gets lost from his pack of friends, and must make it back to his home on the shelf before the Fourth of July weekend. In talking with Evan Goldberg about the home release of This Is the End, he revealed more info about this raunchy look at the life of supermarket snacks, calling it his answer to Pixar's reign as the leading animation company in today's feature film marketplace.
"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."
When asked if he didn't like Pixar movies, Evan said that couldn't be further from the truth,
"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."
He then went onto verify that the synopsis we've heard is correct,
"Yes, it is about a sausage in a supermarket. That is correct. 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."
Does this mean the movie will end in the gruesome death of our sausage hero, as he is consumed on the Fourth of July?
"I can't tell you. Its our secret. I can't tell you too much!"
