Hollywood: Shockingly Stupid

Why not remake Karate Kid? Huh? Now, who can we get?
Jackie Chan is in negotiations to star in the remake of 1984 hit movie The Karate Kid, according to reports.

The martial arts star would take on the role of mentor Mr Miyagi, industry newspaper Hollywood Reporter says.

The character was made famous by Pat Morita in the original film franchise and earned him an Oscar nomination.

Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood actor Will Smith, has already been cast as the boy to be mentored by the martial arts expert.
Thank God those Smith kids keep getting breaks. I can't imagine how hard their life is and I understand talent is inherited.

And Jackie Chan! Wow, what a horrible fucking idea!

Jackie Chan is Chinese and Mr Miyagi is Japanese. AND Kung Fu/Karate...Not the Same. Man I am really a dork.
