Playlist correspondent Drew Morton had a chance to sit down with “The Green Hornet” co-scribe and Seth Rogen writing partner Evan Goldberg in San Diego during Comic-Con 2010. The writer of films like “Superbad” and “Pineapple Express” was not only friendly and personable, but extremely forthcoming about all his upcoming projects, some of them with and without Rogen.
Perhaps most exciting is what Goldberg calls his and Rogen’s “top secret super project” called “Sausage Party.”
Don’t think we haven’t considered this is a joke on Goldberg’s part. In fact, we assumed it was when he told us the title, but when we pried a little further he delivered some small, but sincere details.
“I can tell you no more” he said. “But it’s a CG film and involves Seth [Rogen] and Jonah [Hill] who star and Conrad Vernon (director of “Monsters Vs. Aliens” and “Shrek Forever After“) and Mark Osborne (director “Kung Fu Panda“) are involved. We’ve written that, we’ve finished and are going out to studios with now. We’re very passionate about it. ‘Sausage Party’ is very special to us.”
That’s all we got as the interview was a very short five minutes. But with CG, some animation world veterans and a provocative title, it seems like Rogen and Goldberg have something very special up their collective sleeves. We hope to hear more details soon. — reporting by Drew Morton.
