Jackie Chan (not Stephen Chow as previously rumoured) is in talks to play fly-squatting Mr. Miyagi in Will Smith’s “Karate Kid” remake.
Jaden Smith stars. The Fresh Prince produces. Martin Kove sighs. Ralph Macchio begs for a cameo.
Yeah, I dunno about this…. Chan taking over for the late Oscar-Nominated Pat Morita in his trademark role? Near as sour an appointment as Macauley Culkin taking on Luke Skywalker – …. Or maybe that’s just the five whiskey and coke’s speaking? Nah, it’s not. I just don’t like the idea of a “Karate Kid” remake. Not at all. Leave it. Walk Away.
