A new trailer for “Welcome to the Jungle”, an action-comedy (with the emphasis on ‘comedy’ more than ‘action’, by looks of this) starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Adam Brody, has been released.
Much to my surprise (and anyone whose been following JCVD’s career in recent times), it’s getting a theatrical in February.
Featuring an exceptional cast of comedic talent including legendary action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme (The Expendables 2), Adam Brody (“Burning Love,” “The O.C.”), Megan Boone (“The Blacklist”), Kristen Schaal (“30 Rock,” “Bob’s Burgers”), Rob Huebel (The Descendants, “Children’s Hospital”), and Dennis Haysbert (“24,” “The Unit,” Major League), the laugh-out-loud comedy follows a group of unsuspecting office workers who find themselves stranded on a desert island when a corporate retreat led by unhinged former Marine Storm Rothchild (Van Damme) goes horribly wrong. Now Chris (Brody) and his co-workers must battle nature — and each other — to survive!
Directed by Rob Meltzer and written by Jeff Kauffmann, Welcome To The Jungle garnered the “Outstanding Achievement in Filmmaking – Ensemble Cast” award at the 2013 Newport Beach Film Festival.
