    I didn't see anything else posted on this.
    Well, the original is 25 years old, but I guess it's another sign that you're getting old when they remake movies that were made when you were in high school.
    Heck, it can't be any worse than Karate Kid 3

    Just a curiosity question here... If it is a remake, why does it have a different name? (Kung Fu Kid vs. The Karate Kid)

    Further proof that no one in Hollywood has an original idea anymore.

    The most important question: Who are they going to get to play "Ali with an I??"

    Because Chan is Chinese, as is kung fu. Karate is indigenous to Okinawa/Japan.

    Stop, Hollywood. Just .... just stop. My childhood's ass is hurting from the brutal raping you're giving it.

    Then you'll be thrilled to know they're remaking Fame. Saw a preview for it on Saturday.

    Agreed. I don't see this ending well.
