Will Smith’s Son Starring In Karate Kid Remake12.11.08 # Remake # 2 Comments
Up and coming child actor Jaden Smith will star in the Karate Kid remake.
The ten year old son of Will Smith, who acted alongside his father in the 2006 weepie, The Pursuit Of Happyness, is said to be a martial arts fanatic. Daddy Smith is also producing the movie.
The Karate Kid rehash has been penned by Chris Murphy [er, can anyone find this guy on imdb? - ed.], and will follow the familiar ‘passive boy who learns karate from a quirky mentor to overcome bullies’ scenario.
The original movie, released in 1984, made the late Pat Morita a household name, but the same could not be said of its star, Ralph Macchico. Unlikely the young Smith will suffer the same fate. Will he be going quietly into the night? – somebody is saying “Aw hell no”.
Here’s Megan’s video on the matter (recorded a year ago):
