Though it seemed like Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg had recruited their entire This Is The End cast to give voice to their first animated offering, Sausage Party, there were a few names not mentioned. At least two of those can now be added to the list, as Danny McBride, Paul Rudd and Anders Helm have all signed on to the ‘toon comedy.

Sausage Party will follow one banger's journey to discover the truth about his existence after falling out of a shopping trolley. Can he make it back through the supermarket to his aisle before the Fourth of July? Will he end up going from the frying pan and into the fire? Will he be able to have his cake and eat it? Can sausages even eat cake? We don’t know, and we highly doubt the film will answer that. McBride and Rudd are, of course, old Rogen cohorts, while Anders, a part of the Mail Order Comedy troupe, cameoed in Bad Neighbours.

No details have yet leaked on who - or what - anyone in the cast is actually playing, but we do know that the new additions join Rogen, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, David Krumholtz, Nick Kroll, Michael Cera, James Franco, Craig Robinson and Bill Hader. Rogen and Goldberg came up with the concept, and handed it to Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffier to write, with animation veterans Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan taking on the lion’s share of directorial duties. Which is especially useful since Rogen and Goldberg have also been busy finishing their latest live-action directing job, The Interview.

Sausage Party is now scheduled to hit stores cinemas on June 3, 2016 in the US via Sony, though it remains to be seen whether the UK will have to wait longer to see it.
