Jaden Smith set for 'Karate Kid' redo

Recommended Posts

Jaden Smith to join Justin Bieber on stage

Jaden Smith is set to join Justin Bieber on stage later this month.

The pair met after the young actor appeared in 16-year-old Justin’s music promo for Never Say Never, a track which featured on The Karate Kid soundtrack. Jaden landed his first lead role playing Dre Parker in a re-imagining of the popular 80s martial arts movie and also showed off his musical skills by lending his vocals to Never Say Never.

They have remained in contact since shooting the music video and Justin is keen for 12-year-old Jaden to perform alongside him. Jaden will reportedly surprise the crowd by appearing at Justin’s concert at Madison Square Garden, in New York, on August 31.

Jaden’s superstar parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are expected to attend the show to cheer their son on.

"Special security arrangements are being made for Jaden, who will appear onstage, and his family, including Will, to be in the audience for the concert," a source told the New York Post.

Other guests set to appear include Sean Kingston and Jessica Jarrell.

'Kung Fu Panda' writers to pen 'Karate Kid' sequel (exclusive)

By Borys Kit and Matthew Belloni

Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff are moving from kung fu to karate.

The duo, who wrote 2008's "Kung Fu Panda," have been tapped to pen the sequel to "The Karate Kid," Sony's surprise summer hit that Will Smith produced and starred his son Jaden Smith.

Budgeted in the $40 million range, "Karate Kid" has grossed nearly $300 million worldwide. A sequel was put in motion immediately, with the writing gig becoming one of the hottest assignments in town.

The update deviated from the 1984 original in that the latest story was set in China; a 1986 sequel saw the action go from the U.S. to Japan. The new sequel could try to keep the reversal going and seek to bring its cast to the U.S. Columbia would not reveal the setting or the plot for the new movie.

Smith is producing with Overbrook Entertainment partners James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz.

Voris and Reiff created Showtime's "Sleeper Cell" and made a big splash in features with "Nottingham," their upending of the Robin Hood myth that, after going through the Hollywood meat grinder, eventually was turned into this year's "Robin Hood."

The duo also wrote "Gil's All Fright Diner," which Barry Sonnenfeld and Kirk De Micco are co-directing for DreamWorks Animation.

The writers are repped by UTA, Field Entertainment and attorney Dave Feldman.
