Teen actor Jaden Smith is pictured with his dad Will Smith on the set of their new film M. Night Shyamalan’s “After Earth”. The sci-fi flick is due out in 2013.

In related news, the Jaden will soon be filming a sequel to his 2010 action film ‘The Karate Kid’. The details of the movie are being kept under wraps, but the $218 million that the first movie made was a big factor in execs deciding to make the sequel.

Jaden’s parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will be helping to produce the film while (according to Variety) ‘The Incredible Hulk’ screenwriter Zak Penn is being asked to rewrite the 2010 hit.

With Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan and action movie pro Zak Penn working together on the film, it is sure to be an even bigger box-office hit.

  1. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move
    to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on various websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

  2. Hey are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you need any html coding expertise to make
    your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Jaden is really making a nice career for himself! I don’t find a problem with him getting a little help along the way from his celebrity parents. As long as he’s talented, I don’t see the issue with it. If he was completely UN-talented, that would be a different story. I’ve actually heard and read of quite a few celebrities who got some help along the way from their already established famous parents.

    Compared to Bieber, Jaden Smith isn’t being shoved down anyone’s throat…everytime I click on a celeb news website, though, I see some inanity about Bieber, Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez to the point where it gets excruciating.

    And how far outta the loop am I to not even KNOW him and his dad were making an M. Night Shyamalan movie together?? He’s my favorite director ever! Awesome.

  4. THE FIRST KARATE KID MOVIE THAT JADEN DID WAS GREAT. IM SURE THE SECOND ONE WILL BE GREAT TOO! YES, I DO THINK PEOPLE GIVE THE SMITH FAMILY A HARD TIME BECAUSE THEY ARE BLACK. NO ONE GIVE JUSTIN BEIBER OR MILEY CIRUS A HARD TIME. HE HAS ONLY MADE ONE MOVIE AND SOME OF YOU ACT LIKE HE HAS MADE MILLIONS OF MOVIES. CHILL OUT AND LET HIM GET HIS SHINE.

    • Soooooo agreed!!!! And they don’t wear skinny jeans either. The happy look on Jaden’s face in that picture..luv it. He’s a handsome kid like his daddy. Luv me so Will.

  5. He is too cute btw.. Haha but The Karate Kid is a GREAT movie! Yes, I just hope the second part don’t be that bull.

  6. I don’t get why people complain about the Smith kids and roles! Mommy and daddy own the production company .. Why can’t they keep it in the business and hire their kids for roles? It’s their company and it seems to be working well!! The Smiths know what they are doing. I bet that Annie Remake they film this year will be successful too. Heck if i owned a production company I wouldn’t cast other people . Lol. But of course the company produces other movies without the kids too. But congrats Jaden!! An excited for than Annie w/ lil Willow

    • Not sure the problem is keeping it In the family. It’s over saturation. These kids are being shoved down our throats!

      • LAKISHA HOW ARE THEY BEING SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT? HE HAS ONLY BEEN IN ONE MOVIE IN WHICH HE HAD THE LEADING ROLE. SO THIS WILL ONLY BE THE SECOND. DID MILEY CIRUS OR JUSTIN BEIBER GET SHOVED DOWN YOUR THROAT?

        • Yes @Connie, these kids get shoved down our throats as well. However Miley and Justin are not featured on this site. And justin, I dont believe comes from a famous family. I am speaking of the Smith kids because I FEEL (my personal opinion) they are in the media a little too much. Its my opinion that I have a right too! There are many children trying to get a little limelight with MAJOR talent and it would be nice to see them shine! We get posts on Willow and Jaden because they cut their hair…I mean its just a little over the top to me.

  7. that is true….but aint it always like that?….but what i saw from the new Karate Kid…I like it, too…it just has a different vibe to it…but of course it will always be compared to the original

  8. yay, loved the first one. the old one’s were eh, i loved it when i was younger but when i went back to watch it recently it sucked way too much i couldn’t force myself to watch it. i get that we like to stick to originality but trying to perfect originality is so much more entertaining. especially with the time change, keeping it up to date, dont care what anybody says jaden did an amazing job on that role he made me want to dig out my old karate uniform and bust a move. i was doing splits for a whole month because of him.

  9. of course it would be wrong for it being a different actor in the second part…..as it would have been strange in the eighies if Ralph Macchio wouldnt have played the 2 and 3….and the fourth with Hillary Swank in the end was weird…because it wasnt really Karate Kid…yup Mr. Miagi was in it…but still…it was lacking the main actor…and that is how it would seem now without Jaden in the 2nd…..so way to go Jaden

  10. Karate Kid with Jaden was definitely a remake done right. I would not hesitate to see KK2. @ Trisha you are so right about other actors keeping it in the family. Way to go Smiths.

    • It is not jaden or willows fault that people like them and want to see them in movies and in videos these kids are talented and they shouldn’t have to take a break because those other celebs didn’t become famous until they were adults. they should keep getting their money and shouldn’t have to worry about anybody getting any spotlight. and maybe they actually like making their own money, they don’t have to spent will and jada’s money.

    • and you don’t have to watch their movie if you don’t want to, I’m sure they will do good without YOUR money.IJS

  11. Horray!!….I LOVED Karate Kid and I can’t wait for KK2 to come out. I agree at the above comments , if I had my own movie production company, you best believe my children/family will be in them. It’s nothing wrong with keeping it in the family. And I love that Jaden is going to do it again, cause he was great in the first KK. SN: there’s alot of commercial’s with celebrities and their kids in them too.

  12. Gwynth Paltrow does movies w/ her mom…
    Angelina Jolie did movies w/ her dad…
    Ben Stiller does movies w/ his dad…
    Owen Wilson & Luke Wilson does movies together….
    The Wayne family always do movies/tv shows together (older brother write/produces/direct tv shows & movies & the brothers/nephews/sister are always the stars of it)

    No one never complains about these family keeping the business w/in the family but when the Smith do it, its a problem smh. The Karate Kid was filmed under Will’s production company. Is he gonna deny his kid a role to give to another kid? Any parent would give their a kid 1st pick…

      • @Trisha..the celebs you mentioned became famous as adults and were not consistently thrown in the spotlight. And depending on where you were raised, me being in Hollywood, their are people who have issues with celeb kids having precedence over kids with major talent who see no limelight. I’m all for helping and encouraging your kids but these kids are in the spotlight every week. This is a different age, the info age, so we do see more of celebs in general, but the majority of celebs you mentioned were adults when they had stardom…..

        • @TULIP… THAT IS INCORRECT. SOME OF THOSE CAUCASION PEOPLE MENTIONED DID BEGIN IN THE SPOTLIGHT AS CHILDREN. AND FUTHER MORE, MILEY CIRUS, LINDSEY LOHAN AND JUSTIN BEIBER ARE KIDS WHO HAVE BEEN THROWN IN THE SPOTLIGHT. SO MAYBE THE REAL ISSUE IS THAT PEOPLE ARE JUST HATING ON A SUCCESSFUL YOUNG BLACK BOY!

          • @Connie, I agree with Tulip and yes these kids may have been in a movie or commercal or two, but they were not CONSISTENTLY in the spotlight and media. You are missing the point. Its nice the kids have talent and are doing things but I feel some of it is overkill!

          • and why are you shouting in caps..calm down no one is trying to hate on the success of a black child..Dismiss me with all that!

    • @Tisha I do know people who have concerns about children of stars taking up the limelight. I grew up in Hollywood and saw the struggles of talented little unknown kids and teenagers trying to geat a small role!!!! So to consistently see these kids being put on a pedestal is what frustrates me and others…WIllow is a beautiful child but I know a thousand children who are trained classically and the likes who will never even get an inkling of tv time!

      The people you mentioned became stars as ADULTS and were not in the limelight as children. It is a new age, the information age, however these kids are in the news two or three times a month. Im tired of seeing them!

      No one is just singling out the Smith kids..but I am seeing these kids a bit tooo much..like its oversaturation…. AGAIN I never saw any of the stars you mentioned as children consistently in the limelight!

    • People just hate because the Smiths are a black family and doing it successfully ! That movie made bank.. Better than the original or not. I bet no one would care if they were white . Lol

      • You mean, no one HERE would care if they were white. I see complaints about white celebrities and nepotism all the time. And, you don’t remember all the talk when Gwyneth Paltrow and Mira Sorvino got their Oscars and people saying it was just because of who their parents were? SHM at some people who want to make EVERYTHING about race.

  13. Geez. The rich just get richer. I’m sorry but im tired of seeing the Smith kids. They need to sit down for a year or even 6 months. Give someone else a chance to shine. Their shine is automatic

  14. Yay! I loved the 1st one. It made my little nephew want to do join karate lol

    Congrats Jaden. I wonder where they gonna go w/ the story line & if Taraji is gonna be in this one too
