Okay, so, first Adrien Brody was cast as the protagonist in the remake of Predator (huh?) and now ADAM Brody from “The OC” has just been cast to play opposite 90’s badass, Jean-Claude Van Damme, in a new Lord of the Flies-esque thriller? All right…that’ll work I guess.
Variety reports that Brody and Van Damme will star in, Welcome to the Jungle, a thriller directed by Rob Meltzer. The film also stars Rob Huebel, Dennis Haysbert, and Kristen Schaal.
The movie will follow a group of coworkers who go on a retreat to a tropical island (Um, hi–can I please have a job where I can go on vacation retreats? Thanks.) Unfortunately (not for us, because then we wouldn’t have a movie), the group gets sidetracked and they become stranded in the middle of nowhere, resulting in complete chaos.
The situation escalates to “Lord of the Flies” proportions and it’s up to Brody to stand up the the power-hungry leader (I’m guessing that’s Van Damme), and save his coworkers from their doom. Aw that sounds…boring and unoriginal.
