Jonah Hill and James Franco are among the all-star cast due to lend their vocal talents to Seth Rogen's upcoming animated film.

Rogen and partner Evan Goldberg have also cast Michael Cera, Kristen Wiig, Nick Kroll, Edward Norton and David Kumholtz in their film Sausage Party, according to The Wrap.

The R-rated movie centres around a sausage who, after being dropped from a shopping trolley, embarks on a quest through the supermarket to discover his reason for being.

Many of the cast previously collaborated with Rogen and Goldberg on their comedy This Is the End in 2013.

Sausage Party is due to be released in 2015.
