Grime/vegan icon JME is set to star as himself in Carnage: Swallowing The Past, a new film about veganism directed by comedian/presenter Simon Amstell.

The film also boasts Martin Freeman, Joanna Lumley, Dame Eileen Atkins, Lindsay Duncan, Kirsty Wark, Lorraine Kelly, Vanessa Feltz, and more as cast members.

Amstell's directorial debut is reportedly "set in a utopian 2067 where everyone is vegan."

"Amstell will... narrate the film, which combines archive footage with original drama as it looks back at a time when human beings ate other animals," say Chortle. "In the future, this will be considered an unimaginable bloodbath of unnecessary suffering, according to the film."

Amstell says of his project: "I have written and directed a film about veganism. I’m sorry."

The film is expected to debut on the BBC iPlayer in the spring.
