Variety is reporting that Jackie Chan is in final negotations to join The Karate Kid.

Directed by Harald Zwart, The Karate Kid is a remake of the film of the same name released in 1984, and has received much more attention since the annoucement that it will serve as a starring vehicle for Jaden Smith, the son of Will Smith.

No release date has been announced yet, but a 2009 summer release is speculated.

Jaden Smith & Jackie Chan

This film should be better than the original, why? Well we have a real master at karate not just an actor. Jaden Smith is 11, in the first films Ralph was 23 playing a 15 year old.

Plus Jackie Chan plays the character 'Wong Tong' from the young adult novel 'Fledgling Jason Steed'. That will be very funny.

It wont be as good as the original classic. Jackie Chan does not fit the part becouse he never takes his part series like most of his films!!

You don't think he takes his roles seriously?? Really? I think he does take them very seriously. It's just that so many of his roles are in comedies.

I think he'll do great.

He also knows martials arts, which pretty much NO one in the first movie did.
