Marty Lang, who is currently working to get funding for his new movie Rising Star, announced yesterday that he was cutting the Alyza Challenge short. The Alyza Challenge asked online voters to determine whether Alyza, the main character’s love interest in the film, would follow a plant-based diet.

The contest was originally scheduled to run through September 10 but due to overwhelming support in one direction, Lang halted the challenge and announced his decision.

“We are going to make Alyza a vegan character,” said the director. “Thank you all for your unbelievable support of the film and of Alyza.”

Rising Star tells the story of an overworked insurance adjuster named Chris, who meets his online love interest Alyza—the vegan— and discovers that there could be life beyond his job. The film is half way to its funding goal of $15,000. To help support Rising Star and see Alyza as a vegan character you can make a pledge at KickStarter.com.
