It looks like Jean-Claude Van Damme is embracing his inner goof in his latest, Rob Meltzer’s “Welcome to the Jungle”, which also happens to star Megan Boone, the female lead in NBC’s excellent “The Blacklist”. Other than that, well, there’s the Muscles from Brussels totally goofing off, and the film looks very fun, if kind of pointless. Then again, it is a comedy, and aren’t they all inherently pointless?
Check out the trailer for “Welcome to the Jungle”. Try not to get eaten by tigers while you’re watching.
The film finds JCVD playing the improbable named Storm, a badass jungle expert or some such who leads a company retreat on a tropical island that, predictably, goes terribly awry.
It co-stars Megan Boone, Kristen Schaal, Adam Brody, Dennis Haysbert, Rob Huebel, Bianca Bree, Robert Peters, and Eric Edelstein. Look for it in 2014 or thereabouts.
