Taraji P. Henson To Mother ‘Karate Kid’

Taraji P. Henson (Baby Boy, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button) revealed to MTV exclusively at last week’s MTV Movie Awards that she had recently signed on to a remake of The Karate Kid. “I’m off to Beijing [soon] to work on a film,” she told MTV. “They’re remaking ‘The Karate Kid.’”

Henson will play Sherry, a single mother who is forced to move with her son to China in order to keep her job. Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, will be playing Dre (the Daniel Larusso character) while Jackie Chan plays Mr. Han (the Mr. Miyagi character).  The film has been toying with the title Kung-Fu Kid, but nothing concrete has been determined. Henson is currently filming a comedy titled Date Night with Steve Carrell and Tina Fey, and will fly to Beijing afterwards to start work on the remake/reboot.

I’m not at all sure about this. Remakes are a given at this point so complaining would be pointless, but there is absolutely no one I know that likes Jaden Smith as an actor. And forget the whole “he’s a kid” thing. He single-handedly crippled The Day The Earth Stood Still remake, not like it was hard to begin with, but everything about him just exuded a “I’d rather see him laid to waste by Klaatu” vibe.
