Shyamalan to direct Karate Kid

M.Night Shyamalan’s next movie won’t be the oft-rumoured “Unbreakable 2″, unfortunately. At the same time, it won’t be the ‘promise it’s coming, kids!’ “The Last Airbender 2″. All balances out.

The one-time king of twist will next helm a sci-fi project called ”One Thousand A. E”. Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment will produce.

Heat Vision says plot details are under wraps but it’s believed Will’s son Jaden Smith will star in the flick. A hefty role for a male co-star is also up for grabs, but the Fresh Prince won’t be taking that on.

Earlier in the year there was talk of Shyamalan shopping around a secret script that had Bruce Willis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bradley Cooper attached. This isn’t the project.
