Sausage Party Currently Still on NC-17 Level
As Seth Rogen recently told in an interview once again, Sausage Party is something that no studio dared to touch. It's an animation film with a middle budget and a hard "R" rating that makes fun of all kids films out there, especially targeting Pixar and its Toy Story films where it borrows its structure from.
The film deals with a group of sausages that are shelved in a supermarket and await their purchase and thus their departure from the store. And every one of them has a different expectation of what waits behind the door. Similarly to Toy Story, the food in this movie appears to be motion and lifeless but gets crazy after the market is closed.
Apart from the usual suspects of the Rogen/Goldberg cooperations, other stars such as Edward Norton will have voicing roles.
The "R" rating is currently a goal for the film that has yet to be reached. As of right now, the makers are convinced that it is closer to the "NC-17" rating. If it wants to have a mainstream theatrical release, censorship seems to be unavoidable.
The film is still in development so there's currently no release date set for it. Somewhere in 2015 is most likely the time that the Sausage Party will be held.
