The New Smith Era Begins: The Next Karate Kid

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

It looks like acting is in the blood for the Smith Family, and Will’s little man, Jaden, will be the next Karate Kid:

BCK reported last year in December that actor Will Smith’s son Jaden would be starring in a new version of the 1984 film “The Karate Kid”. More details are being released to further confirm 10-year-old Jaden’s role as the Karate Kid. Variety reports that the film will be produced by Jerry Weintraub (who launched the original franchise) and Overbrook Entertainment’s James Lassiter, Will Smith and Ken Stovitz. The film will be shot next year in Beijing and other cities and will center around the original plot of a bullied youth who uses Karate to stand up for himself.

Jaden’s film credits include ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’(in post-production) and ‘The Pursuit of Happyness.” The original Karate Kid featured actor Ralph Macchio

We always love to see a beautiful black family pass the success down and start a tradition. However, they must be careful because it is not uncommon for Hollyweird children to turn out, well…weird.

Fill in the blank: Little Jaden will have a________ Hollyweird career.

    Acting doesn’t run in their blood, opportunity runs in their wallets.

    And why is acting considered such a “talent” anyway? Pretending to be someone else… please. Overglorified drama class nerds.

    But anyway…

  • OBAMA 2008...anything less is simply retarded

    Lawd…if they make Jackie Chan star as Mr. Miagi….

  • FallinPoet(We finally have a hero we can believe in!)

    i think he’s going to have a pretty good career… and i do not think he’s goin to fall into what most hollywood kid actors do bc he seems to have better parenting.

  • imrightdammit

    “fag-a-liscious”

  • earhustla

    Jaden did good in pursuit of happyness, he will have a wonderful career his parents already did the ground work it is called legacy. I ain’t mad at the family especially if you are talented.

    Acting is a talent and a craft – if you don’t think so look at the non-talent actresses/actors
