More Movie Recycling

I obviously need to expand my website reading repertoire, because I don't recall seeing anything about demand for this.

Jackie Chan is in negotiations to star in the remake of 1984 hit movie The Karate Kid......The martial arts star would take on the role of mentor Mr Miyagi......Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood actor Will Smith, has already been cast as the boy to be mentored by the martial arts expert.

Who thought this should be done? It's not like the original has faded into obscurity, or needs updating. The article notes that it will be filmed in China, which may provide a clue; Chan is a massive star there and could do whatever he wants. It's hard to picture him in Pat Morita's role; he has always come off as too goofy.

A really bad idea just came to mind; the two previous Karate Kids, Ralph Macchio and Hilary Swank, in a romantic adventure-comedy with a martial arts flavor.

Mike, the Karate Kid rehash is a truly bad idea but I fear you've planted the seed of the idea. It is now, I fear, inevitable. We should expect it in trailers soon, and in the discount DVD bin soon after.

Sigh.

Dale, I fear you may be correct. Perhaps I can at least use this post as proof that it was my bad idea and get some money out of it.
