Karate Kid returns — but not the comic book one
Now that Val Armorr’s dead, Hollywood thinks it’s safe to remake The Karate Kid. And now that Pat Morita’s dead, they’ve decided to cast Jackie Chan as Mr. Miyagi.
Variety also reports that the remake will star Will Smith’s son Jaden as the kid, and it will “borrow elements of the original plot” and shoot this summer in Beijing. But don’t worry, they’ll still have to run that disclaimer at the end of the film that acknowledges DC Comics. And I’ll bet cash right now they’ll have "wax on, wax off".
