Sony Pictures has hired The Crazies director Breck Eisner to direct Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith in Karate Kid 2. I enjoyed the first movie. It turned out way better than I thought it would. I was surprised by how much I liked it, and I'm happy to see that the studio is finally moving forward with the sequel.
It can't be any worse then the sequel to the original film. It was on TV over the weekend, and wow… it was bad. It had been a long time since I've seen it, and that ending is laughable in the most ridiculous ways. I do hope they stick with a similar concept though, where Smith's character has to fight for his life outside of a tournament setting. I bet they could do something really cool with that.
