Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 2013 movie This Is The End was, apparently, not the end for that particular cast of comedy actor chums as The Wrap have confirmed a whole bunch of them will reunite to provide voices for Rogen and Goldberg's next project, the animated movie Sausage Party*.
This includes James Franco (Spring Breakers, Homefront), Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street, Superbad), Michael Cera (Juno, Hits), David Krumholtz (Numb3rs, Mr Popper's Penguins) and Nick Kroll (Date Night, Get Him to the Greek), along with Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) to add a female presence.
The movie is described as a "raunchy animated movie about one sausage's quest to discover the truth about his existence." Given the way the meat product is commercially produced, you can't imagine it having the most heartwarming of conclusions. Here's a bit more about the plot...

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's upcoming R-rated animated comedy, Sausage Party, has put together a hell of a fun voice cast! That cast includes Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, David Krumholtz, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, and Nick Kroll.
The story follows a sausage on its quest to “discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero 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.”
This is the same team that brought us This is the End, and it's going to be great to see what kind of animated comedic adventure they give us. It »

If you’re a fan of hilarious actor and comedian Seth Rogen, then you will no doubt be aware of his close friendship with James Franco and his affinity for working with the same actors on multiple projects. Last years ingenious comedy This Is The End directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, gathered together pretty much all of his regular collaborators such as Franco, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera. For my money This Is The End was the funniest film of 2013 and any reunion between the actors involved is more than welcome.
Now it has been revealed that many of the actors from the aforementioned film will be re-teaming for a brand new animated comedy Sausage Party. The film is said to be an R-rated adult animated comedy which will be directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 1-4, Monsters Vs. Aliens) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas And Friends) from a script written »

When we first reported on Sony Pictures' Sausage Party back in September, it wasn't immediately clear if co-writers Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill will also have voice roles in the R-rated animated comedy. Today, we have confirmation that both actors will be a part of the voice cast, along with their This Is the End co-stars James Franco, Michael Cera and David Krumholtz, with Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton and Nick Kroll also signing on for voice roles.
The story follows a sausage who falls out of his shopping cart, and goes on a journey with some new friends through the supermarket to find his way back home before the dreaded 4th of July sale. Back in October, co-writer Evan Goldberg revealed that the film is an "existential mock-Pixar movie," which attempts to take Pixar "down a notch," despite how much he loves their movies.

This is one Sausage Party I would love to attend.

Last summer, This Is The End proved that moviegoers will turn up en masse to see a lot of funny people doing crazy things on-screen, even in projects far out enough to feature cannibal gangs, demonic genitalia, high-speed rapturing and the Backstreet Boys (in under ten minutes of screen time). And so, confirmation that some members of that apoca-comedy’s principal cast, including Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah Hill, will be joining forces for another project shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone who took a peek at just how much their last venture picked up at the box-office.
What’s more surprising are the specifics what they’ve planned next. According to TheWrap, Rogen, Franco and Hill will topline a raunchy animated comedy called Sausage Party, alongside Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll and David Krumholtz.
The flick will follow a heroic sausage »

The This Is the End gang is getting back together—and then some. Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, and Evan Goldberg have been developing a hard-r animated film called Sausage Party for some time, and when Sony Pictures agreed to produce the pic alongside Annapurna Pictures last year, we assumed that Rogen, Hill, and some of their regular collaborators would be leading the voice cast. We assumed correctly, as The Wrap now reports that Rogen, Hill, and James Franco will lead the voice cast for the film, with Michael Cera, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, Nick Kroll, and David Krumholtz also lending their voice talents to the pic. Hit the jump for more. Though The Wrap’s report doesn’t have any information with regards to the characters that the aforementioned actors will be bringing to life, if you need any further convincing of Sausage Party’s eventual greatness, the official synopsis »

By which, we mean, they’d cooked up the idea for a raunchy animated film and were looking to serve it up to willing audiences. They’ve clearly sent invites to all of their friends, and Jonah Hill, James Franco, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll, David Kumholtz and Kristen Wiig have replied yes to the RSVP.They’re not the only names along for the ride: Edward Norton has also agreed to spend time in a recording booth, though we don’t know who anyone will be playing yet.
