Chan says Karate Kid remake retitled

Chan says Karate Kid remake retitled
Clint

No need to pull up your pants, put your belt back on, and tuck your polo back into your trousers – Overbrook Entertainment are still planning to fuck you up the ass, but seems it mightn’t hurt as much as we first thought it would.

The lube? According to star Jackie Chan, Producer Will Smith’s “Karate Kid” remake won’t be released under that name – Thank God[s]! – but,er, “The Kung Fu Kid”. It’s still a remake of John G.Avildsen’s classic ’84 pic, just that nobody will know it now. Less of a blemish, right?

You can read Chan’s quote at FirstShowing.

Jaden Smith (Will’s son) will play the lead in the Chris Murphy-penned remake. Harold Zwart, helmer of the absolutely abysmal “Pink Panther 2″, is line to direct. Chan plays Mr Myiagi, the fly-squatting Karate master played by the late, great Pat Morita in the original (and its three sequels).

“The Next Karate Kid” is starting to look good.
