Jackie Chan to join 'Karate Kid' 80's remake

I have read this morning that Jackie Chan is to play the equivalent part of Mr. Miyagi the handyman and martial arts master, in the 80's remake of Karate Kid due to start filming this summer. The original character was played by Pat Morita in the 1984 original movie.

I posted back in November that Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith was to become the latest star of the remake of the 80's classic The Karate Kid, playing the lead role played by Ralph Macchio as Daniel Larusso.
