'Karate Kid' Remake Sounds Like a Distinctly New, Valid Vision

Moviehole has learned some plot details of Jackie Chan and Will Smith Son's Karate Kid remake, a movie I know everyone is pretty juiced about. Allow me to summarize their findings:

  • Instead of moving from Jersey to Reseda, The Karate Kid moves from the United States to China.
  • The Karate Kid's name is now Dre.
  • Everything else is the same.

That sounds about right. Just let me know when Will Smith releases his hip-hop reinterpretation of Joe Esposito's "You're the Best," a catchy track titled "Da Best." That's when we need to put Ralph Macchio on 24-hour suicide watch.
