Karate Kid deets

May. 6, 2009by:

Like it or not, the KARATE KID remake starring Will Smith's son and Jackie Chan isn't going away. In fact it's getting ready to start filming this summer. Up until now we've only have brief descriptions of what the film would be about (mainly that it would take place in China instead of Los Angeles). Moviehole got their dirty hands on some plot details though and we're getting a clearer (and uglier) picture of what to expect.

You didn't expect to have Jaden Smith be Daniel LaRusso but we now know that his name is "Dre" and he's a video gaming skateboarder. He moves to China with his mother (who takes a big job at a local company) is from there it's pretty much beat-for beat the original movie. Evil dojo, dickhead local and a Mr. Miyagi wanna-be named Mr. Han (that'd be Jackie Chan's character).

There's plenty more on the script at Moviehole, who's scooper says it reads pretty well actually. Could it be true? Check it out and see for yourself. Or you could just head to Crackle and watch the original film again.

Extra Tidbit: There were rumors the film would be retitled THE KUNG FU KID.

If Jackie Chan weren't involved, I wouldn't be so consistently pissed off about this.

AHAHAHAHA

"Dre" just killed it. And [link] I understand the hate, but come on. Who wants Will Smith to burn in hell? Blame the greedy studio heads.

This makes me want to vomit. The soullessness of studio heads never ceases to amaze me. That being said, I haven't realized until now what a terrible tagline the original had. Still a great film though.

Change The Title and we're cool

Think of the great sequels. The Wrestling Kid with Jake the Snake as Mr. Matthews. The Boxing Kid with Mike Tyson as Mr. Rapier. The Ultimate Fighting Kid with a pornstar playing the kids Mom. And then finally The Arm Wrestling Kid with the return of Sly as Mr. Hawk.

what the hell.... seriously... can't film studios think of something better to do than to remake CLASSIC movies. I mean seriously Karate Kid is a classic and whether you wanna call it "Kung Fu Kid" with a kid named DRE(what the hell) and a wanna-be-Miyagi, Mr. Han... it still doesn't change the fact that THIS MOVIE WILL BOMB IN THEATRES!... Will Smith is a decent actor.. his son... is not!... There should be 10 pages of red by this weekend!

It's not like Karate Kid itself was the most original idea.

i just hope they keep the name Cobra Kai!!

and the skull costumes

and wax on wax off

and NOT jackie chan / will smith's son.
