Jackie Chan to star in new "Karate Kid" movie
#1
I saw an ad for this on IMDB. Jackie Chan plays a Kung Fu master in China who takes an American kid under his wing when the kid is roughed up by bullies. The plot sounds very much like the original movie plot starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita.

Movie is supposedly scheduled for a June 2011 release.

I believe Will Smith's son Jaden is playing the kid in this. I saw some reference to this a while back, and mentioned to a couple of people "Who do you think would be a perfect Mr. Miyagi?" and they both instantly said Jackie Chan. A perfect opportunity for him to make a graceful transition into slightly older roles.

You are correct. We watched the ad for it last night, and I couldn't quite place the young actor, but I immediately had Jackie Chan and he made perfect sense. The story appears to be a little more realistic than the original with Ralph Macchio, which both appeals to me and makes me nostalgic.

I may have to bust out my Peter Cetera tape!
