New ‘Karate Kid’ Movie In Development

Sony Pictures has announced a remake of the original 1984 ‘The Karate Kid.’
The movie will center around “a 17-year-old named Li from Beijing who finds himself living in Brooklyn with his mother.”
Rob Lieber who specializes in children’s movies is set as the screenwriter; no director has been named yet.
Who do you think would be good as the lead for the new remake?
