Producer of The Game Changers* James Wilks says he is ‘considering doing more’ plant-based documentaries. 

Featuring on Joe Rogan’s podcast to refute the film’s criticism from Paleo advocate Chris Kresser, Wilks says he ‘would have made a ten-hour film’ if it was possible. 

‘Amazing scenes’

“A couple of arguments that have been made: ‘half of the athletes you found you didn’t put in the film because they stopped being vegan’,” Wilks explains.

“[That’s] completely not true, there were also a bunch of experts we didn’t put in the film who we could’ve put in and we didn’t because there wasn’t room. 

“In filmmaking, it’s called ‘killing your babies’ – there were amazing scenes that would have been really convincing that we couldn’t put in. 

“The evidence in the film is far less than one percent of the evidence that I [collected].”

When Rogan asks Wilks why he doesn’t turn The Game Changers into a Netflix series – Wilks reveals that he is ‘considering doing more’.

*James Wilks co-produced The Game Changers with Joseph Pace, who was also a writer on the film.
