THE MOVIE: Directed by Rob Meltzer, Welcome to the Jungle is a Lord of the Flies-style comedy/thriller starring Jean Claude Van Damme with The O.C.’s Adam Brody, The Flight of the Conchords’s Kristen Schaal, The Descendants’ Rob Huebel, Assassination Games’ Kristopher Van Varenberg and Six Bullets’ Bianca Bree.
Welcome to the Jungle is about the employees at a design firm who end up stranded on a remote island after a corporate retreat gone wrong. It doesn’t take long for a hierarchy to form and pit the survivors at each other’s throats. Jean Claude Van Damme as a corporate raider? Could be interesting.
Updates: Filming begins next month in Puerto Rico so we can only assume that Van Damme’s duties on the set of The Expendables 2 have all but wrapped. On-the-set photo of Van Damme sporting a pornstache and a leaner body. Looks like Kristopher Van Varenberg buffed up for his role. Welcome to the Jungle is currently in post-production.
Vandammefan.net linked a Jimmy Kimmel interview with Kristen Schaal, comedian and Van Damme’s co-star in Welcome to the Jungle. In the interview, she talks a great deal about ‘Claude,’ as well as the movie itself. Here is the interview: Part 1 | Part 2
