Worst Idea Ever: Jackie Chan to Play Mr. Miyagi in Karate Kid Remake

Noooooo! Hollywood, please stop trying to remake 80s films!

I'm getting ahead of myself. Here's the deal. Will Smith’s son, Jaden Smith, has been cast in a “refashioned” remake of the 1980’s classic 'The Karate Kid'. The film will be set in Beijing and, according to Entertainment Weekly, Jackie Chan will play Mr Miyagi and Harold Zwart (Pink Panther 2) will direct the movie. Read more about it at /Film.

I agree with /Film that this is the worst idea ever. 'Karate Kid' has already had to endure three terrible sequels. Why now subject it to such a horrifying remake?
