Jaden Smith Confirmed For Worst Idea Ever; Karate Kid Remake


C’mon with the baby browns.

Variety reports that Jaden Smith (son of rapper Will Smith) has been confirmed for a remake of Karate Kid, which has been “refashioned as a star vehicle for Jaden Smith.” The original is one of my favorite movies of all time and starred Ralph Macchio, a baby-faced Long Island native who nailed the role of Daniel LaRusso, a smart-ass cynic from Newark. Before Karate Kid, Macchio was getting the shit kicked out of him by a gang of Socs in The Outsiders; he’s a straight-up scrappy looking kid in both roles. Jaden Smith is a ten year old from LA. who looks like he can get field-goal-kicked out a window by a 15 year old girl. His only other roles are as Will Smith’s son in Pursuit of Happiness and in the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. ‘Ho boy.

The script is being written by Chris Murphy, and the film will shoot next year in Beijing and other cities. While the new film will be set in that exotic locale, it will borrow elements of the original plot, wherein a bullied youth learns to stand up for himself with the help of an eccentric mentor.

Last year, when rumors first started surfacing about this remake, the talk was that Jackie Chan was slated to play the “eccentric mentor.” Jerry Weintraub, the producer of the original Karate Kid Trilogy (The Next Karate Kid doesn’t exist in my book), will also be producing the remake. His IMDB page also reports Weintraub to be producer of the remake of Westworld, one of the funnest sci-fi movies of the 70s (directed by Michael Crichton!). If anyone needs me, I’ll be crying in the corner, questioning my faith in humanity.
