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.
Trailer for Rob Meltzer's Welcome to the Jungle from Universal Pictures International Entertainment:
Welcome to the Jungle marks the feature directorial debut of Rob Meltzer, and the writing debut of Jeff Kauffman. The film follows action veteran Jean-Claude Van Damme in his first comedy as unhinged former Marine Storm Rothchild, hired to take out a group of unsuspecting office workers to a desert island for a corporate retreat. But the trip falls apart when they find themselves stranded with no pilot. Adam Brody, Kristen Schaal, Bobby Lee, Rob Huebel, Megan Boone and Dennis Haysbert and more star in the Universal Pictures International Entertainment film arriving on VOD and limited theaters on February 7th, 2014.

It's sort of funny to see that we all thought JCVDs' career had come and gone. But now I wonder if he's already at his peak...
