According to the Gorfaine/Schwartz agency, James Horner has replaced Atli Örvarsson on the remake of The Karate Kid. In the movie, work causes a single mother and her young son to move to China, where the boy embraces kung fu, taught to him by a master. The movie directed by Harald Zwart (Agent Cody Banks, The Pink Panther 2) stars Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith and is set to open on June 11 (check out the official movie page to watch the trailer). The movie marks Horner’s first scoring assignment after spending almost two years working on James Cameron’s Avatar.
