Salma Hayek Joining Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's 'Sausage Party'
With a voice cast that only includes one actress amongst a crew of actors, the animated R-rated comedy Sausage Party was beginning to live up to its name. Kristen Wiig is the only female in a cast that also includes Seth Rogen (who co-wrote the film with This is The End co-director Evan Goldberg), James Franco, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Edward Norton and David Krumholtz. But now Deadline reports Salma Hayek is on board too. The film follows a sausage and his friends, fallen out of a shopping car, who must journey through the supermarket in order get back to their proper aisle before the big sale on the Fourth of July.
This won't be Hayek's first rodeo as a voice actress since she also played a feline heroine alongside Antonio Banderas in Puss in Boots. Though Rogen and Goldberg directed their first hit comedy last year, animation is a different animal, so it's Monsters vs. Aliens director Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan at the helm for this one. The film doesn't have a specific release date yet, but the release window is sometime in 2015. This promises to be much better than the mediocre to poor comedies Hayek has taken on recently like Grown Ups 2 and Here Comes the Boom. Sound good?
