Jaden Smith becomes Karate Kid
Will Smith's ten-year-old son will be waxing on and waxing off for a new generation in the upcoming 'Karate Kid' remake. Columbia Pictures is reportedly planning a new version of the 1984 film as a star vehicle for Jaden Smith. The original 'Karate Kid' starred Ralph Macchio, and the 1994 sequel launched the career of Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank.
Jaden Smith made his big-screen debut with his dad in 'The Pursuit of Happyness' and will be seen next in another remake, 'The Day the Earth Stood Still,' due out in December.
