JCVD welcomes a 'Jungle' rumble...

8th June 2012

Van Damme's next outing will see him go up against cougars and office-workers... and inappropriate hairy upper lips...

After promoting his Six Bullets team-up with Stargate: Atlantis star Joe Flanigan at Cannes, the first poster has been released for Jean-Claude Van Damme's next feature, Welcome to the Jungle, also starring Adam Brody (The O.C., Jennifer's Body) and Dennis Haysbert (24, The Unit). Wendy Schaal from Flight of the Conchords and 30 Rock also stars in the movie and has been very vocal about how much she enjoyed working with Van Damme and his rarely seen comedic talent. (Otherwise known as his 'moustache' - strangely missing from the poster but seen in shots from the set...)

In the film, a company team-building "wilderness seminar" goes horribly wrong, and an unhinged ex-marine team-building coach Storm Rothchild (Van Damme) gets mauled by a cougar – the group of office 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. Imagine a Lord of the Flies type story with a more arched eyebrow and tongue-in-bloody-cheek.

The film  - directed by Rob Meltzer and not to be confused with the alternate title to 2003's The Rundown -  was shot in Puerto Rico for a planned 2103 release...
