Will Smith's kid? Really? Ugh.

IGN has been informed by a reliable source that Sony Pictures is developing a remake of The Karate Kid that will be produced by Will Smith's Overbook Entertainment and Jerry Weintraub. Weintraub also produced the 1984 film, starring Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita, and its three sequels.

We were also advised that Smith's son Jaden, 9, is attached to star in the remake. Jaden Christopher Syre Smith starred opposite his dad in last year's The Pursuit of Happyness, which was also released by Sony. We understand that this new Karate Kid is currently out to writers.

IGN didn't hear back from Weintraub's office or Smith's reps by time of publish, so until there's official confirmation consider this a rumor.

I dont understand when they remake movies they feel they have to make the lead a black person. I wonder how the black community would like it if we remade things like Sanford and Son, or the Jeffersons with white leads. I would imagine it would go over like a fart in church.

Maybe they do it because they know black people spend there money at the movies instead of paying bills.

This sounds like shit.

Don't mess with my movie.

Can Will Smith get aids already?

I Robot - Wild, Wild, West - now this.

Keep fucking up classic movies.

Also - do any of these douchebags have an *original* idea in their heads?

About the Douchebags, I agree. Can't those hollywood Douchebags have an original thought anymore? Anyone know who is producing this mess?

Um . . . doesn't that seem a little bit too young for the part? Unless they're "re-inventing the franchise" :yuck2: as a kiddie film?

Will Smith just wants his kid to be a star like him. This is so ridiculous.

Remakes are only needed when the original is so culturally distant it no longer has the same level of contact.

This is not the case with the Karate Kid. The original is still a good movie.

I don't understand this at all. There is no reason to remake this film.

Don't blame him. If Hollywood wants to keep giving him millions of dollars for these shittly movies why should he turn them down?
