Here’s the first photo for a remake which as yet, I haven’t found anyone who wants…. that of The Karate Kid. Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan are staring in the remake of the 1984 movie of the same name (although this version does seem to be changing what it’s called all the time). This first official image is from People and it looks like the two main cast are in a diner of some sort. What’s not clear is whether it’s part of the movie or just a shot of them on set.
Jaden Smith has apparently been training and stretching a lot for the role saying:
“I trained every day for four months with Master Wu [the film’s fight coordinator],” Jaden, 11, tells PEOPLE as he takes on his first leading role as an American boy named Dre Parker who moves to China. “We did a lot of stretching.”
This travesty is due out 16th July 2010. Am I being harsh?
