While Seth Rogen‘s 2016 animated Sausage Party made the most of its R rating, he’s teasing that an upcoming sequel is going to be even more controversial.
The movie was a potty-mouthed anthropomorphic adventure centering on what your food is up to when you’re not looking. It was written by Rogen, his producing partner Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill, and starred the voices of Rogen and Hill, as well as Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Edward Norton, Salma Hayek and more.
To the U.K. movie magazine Empire, Rogen recalls one “unbelievably shocking” scene in the upcoming Sausage Party: Foodtopia.
“There’s one specific scene that had a special screening for the Amazon PR people.” He recalls advising them, “You should all just start wrapping your heads around this now. You’ll probably have to talk about this a lot."”
He then explained Wiig — who returns as the hot dog bun Brenda to Rogen’s hot dog, Frank — said of the scene in question, “Oh my God?! This is insane!"”
Sausage Party: Foodtopia should be released in 2024.
Incidentally, pushing the envelope has become something of Rogen’s stock-in-trade. He recently told ABC Audio of the upcoming season of his show The Boys, “there’s one set piece in this new season that is, like, ‘I’m disturbed that I work with the people who conceived of it."”
