TheWrap reports, “’Sausage Party’ follows one heroic piece of meat’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, the sausage protagonist teams up with some new friends to embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket and return to their aisles before the Fourth of July sale.”
Conrad Vernon (Monsters vs. Aliens) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends) will direct the sure-to-be-raunchy Sasauge Party from a script co-written by Rogen, Goldberg, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.
