The Karate Kid is getting remade

The Associated Press has announced that Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith will star in the remake of the 80’s film “The Karate Kid”. Filming has already started in Beijing, China.

I don’t know how I feel about this. “The Karate Kid” is such a classic 80’s film. Who can forget this line?

“Wax on. Wax off.” – Mr. Miyagi (played by Pat Morita).

Max Steel rides onto the big screen

Source: Variety.com

Paramount Pictures has just announced that they are bringing “Max Steel” to the big screen. Max Steel was first introduced by Mattel in 1999, and the toy franchise was later developed into a TV series that ran from 2000-2003. Here is the premise:

After an accident, a 19 year old extreme sports enthusiast joins a secret agency after being infected with nanobots which makes him super human.

It almost sounds like a cross between the movie XXX and the TV show Jake 2.0. It makes you wonder after all of the cartoons, comics, and toy adaptations – is there any more original material out there?
