Last year, Will Smith denied that his 10-year-old son Jaden Smith would star in a remake of “The Karate Kid.” Will was majorly lie-telling. It was confirmed that Jaden will play the title role in a remake which starts shooting in Bejing and other places next year.
Variety reports the movie will be produced by Jerry Weintraub (he did the original). Chris Murphy will write that shit. The remake will follow the same plot as the original: a bullied kid fights back thanks to the help of a mentor.
This will be Jaden’s third movie. He’s already had roles in “The Day The Earth Stood Still” and “The Pursuit of Happyness.”
A Karate Kid without Pat Morita is illegal, hurtful and wrong! And isn’t Jaden too young for this shit? I mean, is he going to have a love interest? Oh shit. You know Tommy Girl is going to make Suri play the Elisabeth Shue role. And then John Travolta is going to play Mr. Miyagi. Keep it in the Scientology family!
