Will Smith in Beijing for movie shoot

July 09, 2009 | Posted by Chris

Will Smith, accompanied by his wife and children, was seen yesterday in Beijing, where is he preparing to shoot a movie, the China Daily reports. The movie will be a remake of the 80s classic "The Karate Kid" and will star Smith's 11 year-old son, Jaden. Dad will not be far away, though, because Smith will play an antagonist in the film and is also a producer. Expected to be released in June 2010 and called "Kung Fu Kid," the movie will also feature Jackie Chan as Jaden's martial arts mentor. This is not the first time Smith and his son Jaden have worked together: in 2006 they worked on "The Pursuit of Happyness," for which the older Smith earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination.
