SALES POSTER FOR VAN DAMME STARRING COMEDY WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE
May 15, 2012
Jean Claude Van Damme makes a foray into comedy in the Rob Meltzer directed Welcome To The Jungle, in which the Muscles From Brussels stars as a wilderness survival / workplace team building trainer opposite Adam Brody, Rob Huebel, Kristen Schaal, Megan Boone, and Dennis Haysbert.
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?
With the Cannes Marche du Film around the corner international sales agents The Salt Company have revealed the first sales art and we're pleased to have the first look. Shots from the set featured Van Damme sporting a handlebar mustache and massive sideburns so he may very well look a touch different on screen than on the poster.
