Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg seem to be at a point in their careers that industry execs trust their judgment enough to allow even the most obscure subject matters to be green lit and funded. After the success of ‘Superbad’ and most recently, ‘This is The End’, the writing pair are considered comedy gold, influencers for the millennial generation.

Case and point: Sony Pictures and Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures are partnering on a new R-rated comedy from Rogen and Goldberg called ‘Sausage Party,’ following the journey of a hot dog that’s fallen out of a sausage cart.

Described by Variety as a “raunchy comedy,” ‘Sausage Party’ is about “one sausage’s quest to discover truth about his existence.” After falling out of the aforementioned shopping cart, the 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.”

“We’re thrilled to be back in business with Seth and Evan,” Doug Belgrad, President of Columbia Pictures, said in a statement. ”This project has all the irreverent, insightful and risqué R-rated humor we have come to expect from them.”

‘Sausage Party’ is written by Rogen, Goldberg, Hunter & Ariel Shaffir, and Jonah Hill, James Weaver, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir are executive producing. The animated feature is expected to be released in 2015.
