If a reboot works, then I guess a sequel to the reboot or a reboot to the sequel is in order. And seeing as how the Karate Kid taking in $343 million across the world, and Will Smith giving his special little boy what he wants, it’s no surprise we’re being treated to Karate Kid 2.
Both Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan will be returning because they’re both amazing.
The original screenwriters have been replaced and the slated director Brock Eisner (pretty sure that’s not the wrestler with a similar name) has walked due to “scheduling conflicts,” but these days that’s just a pretense.
The real reason someone associated with the film would walk was because Jaden Smith‘s Tweets were either too obnoxious or too creepy. Often both!
