Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul released his highly-anticipated ‘mockumentary’ on the Flat Earth community in late March – but it looks like he’s already gearing up for his next project.
Paul hinted at his next ‘documentary’ in a vague Tweet on April 9, where he teased that it would be even bigger than his last film.
“We found the idea for our next documentary,” the YouTuber wrote. “If Flat Earth was an appetizer, this one is a five-course fucking meal.”

What is Logan Paul’s next ‘documentary’ about?
While Paul failed to elaborate further on the project, many fans speculated that the documentary might cover the anti-vaccination movement – although others theorized that it could concern California’s invasive wildlife, following the death of Paul’s Pomeranian by two coyotes on April 5.
Knowing him, of course, there’s certainly no telling what he might have up his sleeve, meaning fans will just have to wait until the documentary drops to find out what’s in store.
Flat Earther Backlash
The YouTuber’s previous ‘documentary’ on the Flat Earth theory earned him ample backlash, with Flat Earth International Conference organizer Robbie Davidson claiming that he had been “punked” into allowing Paul’s crew to film the event.

“Another thing that he outright lied about was the fact that he was going to be doing a documentary,” Davidson vehemently said of the situation. “…quite honestly, I was punked. I was duped.”
That’s not all; Davidson later claimed that Paul had even broken the law by featuring a 14-year-old girl in the film without her parents’ consent.

However, many fans noted that Colorado (the state in which the Conference took place) is a single-party consent state in terms of recording and phone calls, ultimately rendering Davidson’s allegations null.
Paul even teased that he might have been a Flat Earther prior to the film’s release, after video footage surfaced of his speech at the Conference in November 2018 – where he claimed to have “come out of the Flat Earth closet.”
He likewise made a leading statement during an episode of the ‘Corridor Cast’ podcast in late January, where he baited fans with the possibility of joining the Flat Earth community.
“You two could be sitting in front of a Flat Earther right now,” Paul said of his then-unreleased film. “Who knows?”
Paul has since expressed a desire to step away from YouTube altogether, claiming that he hopes to branch out into stand-up comedy, film making, and music instead – although his next project could see him remain on the platform for a little bit longer.
