Van Damme Stars With Adam Brody In Comedy WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Jean Claude Van Damme playing a mentally suspect ex-Marine turned workplace teambuilding coach? Believe it, people, because it's being shot right now.

Van Damme stars opposite Adam Brody in director Rob Meltzer's upcoming comedy Welcome To The Jungle, with production currently under way in Puerto Rico.

CHRIS (Adam Brody) is a workplace weakling who doesn't have the balls to stand up to the slick office bully, PHIL (Rob Huebel), who steals all his ideas, and he has yet to muster the courage to ask out cute HR manager, LISA (Megan Boone). Even Chris' only friend, JARED, a sarcastic slacker IT guy who secretly monitors everyone's porn intake, slams Chris for being a pussy.

But when a team-building "wilderness seminar" goes horribly wrong, and unhinged ex-marine teambuilding coach STORM ROTHCHILD (Jean-Claude Van Damme) gets mauled by a cougar - Chris and his co-workers find themselves stranded on a deserted tropical island with no rescue in sight... and someone's going to have to step up and take charge.

Phil quickly proclaims himself "God" of the island - but Chris has Boy Scout skills and would be far better suited to lead the group if he could overcome his fear - of everything. Can Chris finally man-up to Phil, release his inner-beast, get them rescued and win the girl? Or will Phil triumph, as usual, while Chris cowers like a bitch-boy?
Someone please, please tell me that JCVD gets to punch the cougar before being mauled.

Sales rights for the film are being handled at the ongoing EFM by Salt.
