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 continued. About a year after the separation, Multimedia Productions cancelled the project completely.

Red Jungle contains examples of the following tropes.
- The Amazon: Where the film was going to take place.
- Argentina Is Nazi-Land: This film was intended to have Nazi holdovers in South America as the primary antagonists.
- Five-Man Band: The heroes were all part of one of these. However, since the film saw very little development before being cancelled, there is no information as to who these characters would be.
- Nazi Hunter: The six heroes in this film are a squad of these.
- Those Wacky Nazis: Essentially, the film's antagonists.
- While nothing ever came from this project, 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.
