    Shouldn't Smith give other actors a chance before casting his own son? It seems awfully presumptuous to me, but then again, I haven't seen "The Pursuit Of Happiness" (where Jaden made his debut). I could be wrong about this, but as pointed out in an article on the subject, it's nepotism of the highest kind.

    There's just some movies that don't need a remake. One is the Karate Kid.

    If that exists, nothing in Hollywood is sacred.

    Wonderful. I can't believe he wants to butcher a classic.

    Peronally I don't think the film need a remake. However lets not jump the gun and say it's going to be butchered. I may turn out good. Isn't the original writer on board with this?

    Just thought I'd mention that I found The Pursuit Of Happiness a great film. I like how Will's character acted as a good role model and all that to his son, despite the hardships they were going through. It's nice to see African American males portrayed in a positive life, outside of rappers, pimps, and drug dealers.

    I also like the fact that Will Smith in general seems to encourage working with his family. I guess it is a bit of a disadvantage casting wise, though, but just because he's cast, doesn't mean he'll actually get the part.

    I seldom get pissed off about things like this, but when I heard this on EITM yesterday, I was seein' red. They need to leave The Karate Kid classics ALONE.

    Karate Kid is a classic. Leave it alone.

    They'll probably have 50 Cent or some other "big time" musician from this day and age do a cover of the classic "You're The Best Around." If that happens, heads will roll.
