Vegan

James Cameron teamed up with The Cove’s Louis Psihoyos to make the movie.

Cameron executive produced, while Psihoyos directed.

Psihoyos told Boulder Magazine: "The world’s strongest guy is a vegan. 

"The world’s fastest guy, Carl Lewis, was the first to break 10 seconds, and he did it when he was a vegan. 

"We’re trying to dispel the myth that you need protein from animals to become a 'real man'."

The general release date is not yet known.
