Slowly but surely, Sony is still moving forward with a sequel to the 2010 remake The Karate Kid. It’s been a few years since we’ve heard solid word regarding the project, but it appears that the studio is keen on getting it off the ground now as Deadline reports that Breck Eisner has been set as the director. Harald Zwart (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) directed the first film with Jaden Smith assuming the lead role and Jackie Chan playing his mentor. Against a $40 million budget, the pic grossed $176.5 million stateside and an impressive $182.5 million overseas, ensuring that a follow-up will have crossover appeal in international markets.
