Watch: Jean-Claude Van Damme Gets Funny 'Welcome to the Jungle'
Following his recent viral splits stunt (which was parodied by Channing Tatum on the set of 22 Jump Street), Jean-Claude Van Damme is back in the trailer for his first comedy, Welcome to the Jungle. A group of office workers, including Adam Brody, Rob Heubel and Kristen Schaal, head out on a corporate retreat with a former Marine. And what should be a nice team-building escape from the office turns into a dangerous trip in the wilderness with Van Damme as their only hope for survival from nature and each other. This has the feel of straight-to-DVD comedy, but this cast and JCVD having fun could work.
