Well, actually, The Karate Kid 2
already exists so this would the sequel to the remake of The Karate Kid
, but not a remake of the original sequel. Karate Kid 2 Take 2
? Whatever you label it, Columbia Pictures is in fact moving forward on a sequel to last weekend's surprise first place finisher
, according to Deadline Hollywood
. The Karate Kid
(2010) with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan outperformed all advance estimates, so greenlighting a sequel was truly a no-brainer. Plus, at the film's premiere Jaden Smith guaranteed
there would be a Karate Kid 2
, and the kid's connected so it's worth listening to what he says about such matters.
There's no word yet on the story for the sequel or whether it'll be set in China. The 1986 The Karate Kid, Part II
had Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio
) and Miyagi (Pat Morita) in Okinawa visiting Miyagi's dying father and making new enemies along the way.
