Karate Kid 2 Movie - Karate Kid Sequel

Karate Kid 2 - Karate Kid Movie SequelThe remake of the Karate starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan is performing more than well in theaters: no wonder, after all it's a real great movie and both actors are just amazing. So you bet that movie execs at Sony Pictures are now considering a movie sequel to Karate Kid. Unfortunately there's no immediate plan for the sequel. Here's what Director Harald Zwart said about a potential Karate Kid 2 movie:

"Every now and then we discussed the sequel. The truth is, when you see Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith, they're like a really good film couple. On and off camera, I was watching how they were pulling practical jokes on each other and throwing rocks in the lake, and you just want to keep looking at them because they have a great dynamic and great humor. We have just been playing with a few different ideas, but we haven't landed on anything at the moment.
I personally think it's now so much on its own two feet, given the success, that it would be interesting to see where we could take it without ever thinking about the old movies."
Director Harald Zwart

I agree with Harald Zwart. The new Karate Kid franchise has its own legitimacy and is definitely independent of the previous franchise. So I really hope that they will keep it that way, and that Karate Kid 2 will be based on a brand new original story.

Do you have any suggestion for the script of Karate Kid 2?
