Jackie Chan could be Mr. Miyagi!
More casting news is leaking out on the Columbia Pictures remake of our beloved Karate Kid. According to Comcast.net, martial arts guru Jackie Chan is interested in taking over the mentor role of "Mr. Miyagi," previously made famous by the late Pat Morita.
Jaden Smith, the son of actor Will Smith, already appears set to play the new protege role -- the new "Daniel-San" -- previously played by Ralph Macchio.
Another change in direction: The movie would be set in China rather than the United States.
