The moment has finally come! The legendary Jackie Chan has stepped up to fill the shoes of everyone’s favorite mentor Mr. Miyagi in the Columbia Pictures remake of “The Karate Kid.” Chan will team up with up and coming actor Jaden Smith in the remake of the wax on wax off phenomenon.
Keeping the overall plot the same, Director Harold Zwart has added a modern twist to the timeless classic about a boy who has to find the inner strength to stand up for himself and do what’s right. This time around it is the student who is in the foreign land taking the fight to the Do-Jo’s of China. “The Karate Kid” hits theaters on June 11, 2010.
