The Karate Kid Remake Movie
"Work pressures cause a single mother moves to China with her young son; in his new home, the boy embraces karate, taught to him by a master of the self-defense form."

When I first heard there would be a remake of the Karate Kid, i wasn't much excited, I was thinking it would be some low-quality remake. But since I know Jackie Chan is on board, I'm actually quite thrilled by this movie. Jackie Chan is the best choice in that role. And regarding Jaden Smith, well I guess any kid would make do for the role of the student as long as he's motivated!

Let's hope that they will release the trailer of this Karate Kid remake soon.
