A deal is reportedly being finalised with martial arts star Jackie Chan to play the role of Miyagi in a remake of the 1984 movie Karate Kid. The role was played by the late Pat Morita in all four Karate Kid movies to date.

The movie will be directed by Harald Zwart, whose most recent movie is Pink Panther 2, which is not yet released. Starring alongside Chan will be Jaden Smith, son of actor/singer Will Smith.

The movie will be shot in Beijing and will combine elements of the original movie with an “exotic Asian locale”. Filming is expected to get underway this summer.
