Will Smith’s production company has had tongues wagging since it was announced it plans to remake “The Karate Kid.” New details have been released on the film starring Will’s son Jaden Smith as the lead. Jaden will star as Dre, the character of Daniel in the original movie, according to MTV. The new version is leaving America and will be based in Beijing, as Dre’s mom moves to China for her job. Jackie Chan is filling the shoes of the karate teacher who introduces Jaden’s character to martial arts, after he is the target of bullies.—CJ
