Confirmed: Jackie Chan in for “The Karate Kid” remake, set to portray Mr. Miyagi…

Martial arts master and action movie star, Jackie Chan, is in final negotiations to star in “The Karate Kid” remake being developed by Columbia Pictures. Chan will be portraying the legendary role of Mr. Miyagi, Daniel Larusso’s trainer. Jaden Smith, who is Will Smith’s real life son will be playing Larusso.

The plot/synopsis to the “Karate Kid” remake will be similar to the original film, where a young boy moves to a new town, goes to a new school, gets bullied by bigger kids in school, the boy decides to learn karate to defend himself. I’m sure Jaden and Jackie will not have the Daniel and Mr. Miyagi names in the film, I’m sure the character names in the remake will be different. The film is being directed by Harald Zwart.

As long as Jackie Chan is going to be in this, I’ll see this in theater. I love Jackie Chan movies.

Hopefully there’ll be a Ralph Macchio cameo in this film as well!
