Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff the guys who wrote DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda have been hired to write the sequel to the most recent Karate Kid remake.
Did you see the Karate Kid remake? I was shocked at how good it was! I wasn't expecting the film to be that good. If you haven't seen it yet, make sure to watch it when it comes out on DVD, becasue I'm pretty confident that you'll be plesantly surprised. The film was made on a $40 million dollar budget, and it took in more than $300 million at the box-office. A sequel for the film was announced shortly after the movie was released.
There are no details on what the new sequel will be about, but I'm sure it will involve Jaden Smith getting his ass kicked again by even better Kung Fu students, which will force him to dive deep into the world of underground Kung fu fighting. Which will cause Mr. Han to tell him at the climatic moment, "This not tournament... this for real." I can only hope it ends up being as good as the the first remake.
I think Voris and Reiff have the talent to bring something cool and fun to the sequel.
