Rising Star, a new movie being produced and directed by filmmaker Marty Lang, could possibly feature a vegan/vegetarian lead character. The “possibly” comes into play because that decision will be left to you.

The film tells the story of Chris, an overworked insurance adjuster, who meets his online love interest Alyza—the potential vegetarian—and discovers that there could be life beyond his job.

A challenge, dubbed the Alyza Challenge, was presented by Lang to the cast and crew of Rising Star, “Okay, if you can get more people to say she should be vegan/veg, she’ll be vegan/vegetarian in the script.”

Ali Berman, Rising Star’s Sustainability Planner, is working to produce an environmentally friendly set while shooting the film and is thrilled that Alyza could possibly follow a plant-based diet. Berman points to other films that are focusing on sustainable actions and wants Rising Star to be part of the trend.

Fans are being asked to answer the question, “What food should Alyza be eating in the movie?” through Facebook or Twitter (Follow @RisingStarMovie and Retweet: Alyza #VeganVegRS @RisingStarMovie OR Alyza #OmnivoreRS @RisingStarMovie). Votes must be cast before Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET.

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
