Set Pics: Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith in 'Karate Kid' Remake


Jackie Chan is captured on the set of 'Kung Fu Kid' portraying Mr. Han and teaching Jaden Smith's Dre the Chinese martial arts.

The first pictures from the set of "Kung Fu Kid", a loose remake to 1984 hit "The Karate Kid", have surfaced. Put out by Spoiler TV, the set photos center their attention to two of its major characters, Jaden Smith's Dre and his Kung Fu mentor, Jackie Chan's Mr. Han. The series of images capture the two shooting for training sequence on a misty dock.

In this updated version of "Karate Kid", Jaden takes the role of a boy who moves to Beijing with his mother. There, he'll encounter a bully situation similar to what Daniel LaRusso, the main character in "Karate Kid" faced. Learning how to stand up for himself, the teenager gets a helping hand from an eccentric mentor.

"Kung Fu Kid" is in production under the direction of helmer Harald Zwart. Screenwriter Steven Conrad has been hired to work on Chris Murphy's script. "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" star Taraji P. Henson stars as Dre's mother. Produced by Jaden's father, Will Smith, this drama film is scheduled to be released in U.S. on June 11, 2010.
