Pics of Jean-Claude Van Damme on the Set of Welcome to the Jungle

3 Comments

When I first heard that Jean-Claude Van Damme was set to star in the upcoming comedy “Welcome to the Jungle”, I was understandably thrilled with the idea. Even the presence of “The O.C.” alumni Adam Brody, an actor whose continued success is cause for serious confusion, didn’t take away from my unbridled excitement. To add fuel to this cinematic fire, a few shots of JCVD from the set of the upcoming comedy have found their way online, all of which show the action hero sporting some wicked sideburns and a pretty kick-ass mustache. This movie just got a lot freaking sweeter.

Here’s a plot synopsis should you need one:

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?

Written by Jeff Kauffmann and directed by Rob Meltzer, “Welcome to the Jungle” is currently scheduled to arrive sometime next year. In the meantime, you can investigate the JCVD-related images below. Just like his facial hair, the pics are pretty nifty.

    JCVD looks funny, he was great in those Coors Light beer commericals.

    I hope he turns out to be great in this movie and The Expendables 2.

    I saw this pictures a couple of days ago. Indeed he looks great for a comedy! He don’t really look like JCVD, and that’s sweet!!

    I hope this one and Expendables 2 to be a wild success and bring the guy back to the top spots.
