Plot Summary Edit
While it has been confirmed that a script for this film exists, it is not available in the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. archives, and therefore cannot be accessed. What is known is that the film centers around six mercenaries in the year 1955, who set out for Brazil to hunt down escaped Nazi leaders that have held over from World War 2. Action scenes would include tank battles, zeppelin fights, and PT boat hunts.
Production History Edit
Early on in 2010, Mustache Maniacs Film Co. looked for ways to expand its outreach. While Andrew Bermudez was spending some time with cousin Garrett Schelske, he was introduced to a friend of his, who was working on what he called "an Inglorious Basterds-style film" set in Brazil. Looking to expand a presence and a coverage of genres, Andrew Bermudez partnered with their company, Multimedia Productions, for the project.
Red Jungle was officially announced on April 18, 2010, with no release date planned at that time. However, as time went on, some of Multimedia Productions' staff wanted to focus on short films instead, leaving a split between the two studios. After a fall meeting, the film was effectively cancelled on November 15, 2010, though reports state that writing for this film is still on-going. It is unknown if this film will move forward with Mustache Maniacs Film Co. or independently, if at all.

- While nothing may have come from this project as of yet, this project did eventually lead to the development of the Project U-Build Play Set Adventures, as several play set tie-ins were envisioned for this film.
- While in a project meeting, it was stated that there was the possibility of having the film center on one character. However, Andrew Bermudez argued against the idea in order to create more character dynamics.
