"But when I read the script, I fell in love with all these characters. And the use of the body swap in this way was really original and I knew they would nail it. And this cast is just dynamite."

Unlike the original, the new film follows four high school teenagers who discover an old video game console and are transported into the game's jungle setting, becoming the adult avatars they chose.

The four must work together to survive in the jungle and beat the game in order to return to the real world or they will be stuck forever.
