Will Smith is set to direct a remake of the classic film The Karate Kid, with his kid, Jaden, in the lead role of Daniel LaRusso, and Jackie Chan as Mr. Miyagi. The film will be produced by Smith with the original Karate Kid producer Jerry Weintraub in tow once again.
Jaden, now 9, has acted before, co-starring with Smith in The Pursuit of Happyness, but this is a whole different venture. He's not only going to have to carry a feature on his own, but it's going to be something high-profile like a remake that a whole lot of people have strong feelings about. Tough draw, kid.
Just remember to wax on, and don't get your leg swept, no matter what happens.
