Like any super-new feature, Foxx is keeping the plot a secret, but Spellman did offer this little tidbit: "Life is a jungle and welcome to it." My guess: Welcome to the Jungle will be an animated movie where real life is filled with the animals of the jungle, not so much an animated tale of Axl Rose and Guns 'n Roses. However, don't be surprised if their iconic song pops up. Spellman also noted that the film is "specifically built to utilize Jamie's talent with voices and as a musician." Could the movie have that title, and singing, and not include the hit song? That'd be a tease, even if the film is already full of original Foxx tunes.
For a man jumping between romantic fluff and dark action, this is quite a twist -- especially since this project will mark his first steps into cinematic animation. But hey, anything's better than Valentine's Day, right?
