News of another Karate Kid movie shouldn’t come of too much a surprise, since that last terrible excuse for a remake did an astonishing 320 million worldwide. Not bad for a remake, and considering how terrible of an actor Jaden Smith is.
The Karate Kid 2
It’s mostly rumoured scripts at this point, but the top source suggests ‘Dre Parker’ is coming back to America this time around. Zak Penn has been hired to write the script, he was the brains behind the last Incredible Hulk movie… take it for what it’s worth. Word on the street is that the script has been mostly finished since 2010, as they started making it right after The Karate Kid began doing well at the box office.
We hope it makes a return to America, we hope Johnny Lawrence has a cousin that somehow comes back and kicks Trey’s whiny little ass. Please bring back the Cobra Kai! Please!
I personally hated the last Karate Kid remake, I thought it lacked in creativity and Smith can’t carry a lead. He’ll be older now, I suppose we’ll have to hold out hope the film takes a new direction this time around.
The Karate Kid 2 Release Date
They are hoping to release the new Karate Kid movie in 2013
Nope, nothing yet.
Who’s In It?
Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan will be in the Karate Kid sequel.
The Good Stuff?
The Karate Kid has the potential to do it right this time around, if they bring back some originality to the franchise. Stop copying the original premise that much, and take this franchise forward.
The Bad Stuff?
Can’t stand Jaden Smith, and I’m not certain I can stomach another entry into the Karate Kid franchise.
