In less thrilling news, a director has finally been picked -- Harald Zwart. While he's far from a Hollywood abomination, his resume doesn't inspire much confidence: One Night at McCool's, Agent Cody Banks, and The Pink Panther 2. So I'm betting we'll get one of those fluffy family features that does alright at the box office, but doesn't inspire much critical love or lasting fandom. I mean, the last one had the guy behind Rocky. (Okay, okay, John Avildsen was also the guy behind A Night in Heaven, but it was the '80s. I'll give the dude some benefit of the doubt since he went on to helm Lean on Me and The Power of One.)
So, does Chan fit in the Miyagi mould, or are you officially steering clear of this remake?
