Simon Armstell’s Carnage: Swallowing The Past is set in the vegan utopia of 2067, and will combine archive footage with original drama.

The premise is that everyone alive in 50 years’ time will be completely baffled by the fact that humans used to eat other animals.

MC JME joins a stellar cast list for Carnage which already includes Martin Freeman, Joanna Lumley and Dame Eileen Atkins. According to Chortle, many of the stars featured in the movie will play themselves, including JME, while Kirsty Wark, Lorraine Kelly and Vanessa Feltz will also have short cameos as themselves.

Commenting on the theme of the film, Amstell said: “I have written and directed a film about veganism. I’m sorry.”

Victoria Jaye, the head of content for BBC iPlayer, said: “In a culture obsessed by what’s on our plates, Carnage imaginatively challenges our attitude towards eating meat, fish and cheese triangles. Prepare to never look at your dinner the same way again.”
