Salma Hayek is set to join the ensemble voice cast of Sony’s raunchy animated comedy Sausage Party, Deadline reports. She’ll play a taco named Teresa opposite Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig, Edward Norton, Michael Cera, Nick Kroll and David Krumholtz.
The film follows one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale.
Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan are directing the 2015 release for Sony Pictures and Annapurna Pictures. Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir.
Hayek most recently appeared on the big screen in Grown Ups 2. She’s next slated to star opposite Pierce Brosnan in Tom Vaughan’s romantic comedy How to Make Love Like an Englishman.
Annapurnas Megan Ellison will produce Sausage Party with Rogen and Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures, as well as Vernon. Point Greys James Weaver will executive produce with Hill, Hunter and Shaffir.
