Jaden Smith is The Karate Kid

Jaden Smith, the 10-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, will star in the refashioned 1984 hit The Karate Kid, reports Variety.

The film will be produced by his dad, Will, as well as Jerry Weintraub (who launched the original franchise) and Overbrook Entertainment’s James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz. The film will shoot next year in Beijing and other cities.

Jaden costarred alongside Will in his feature debut, The Pursuit of Happyness.

Ralph Macchio was about 20 when he played Daniel Larusso in The Karate Kid.
