Karate Kid 2 Gets Its Writers

Somehow fittingly, Sony has assigned Kung Fu Panda writers Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff the challenge of writing Karate Kid 2, follow-up to this summer's Jadan Smith hit.
Notes The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision column, "Budgeted in the $40 million range, Karate Kid has grossed nearly $300 million worldwide. A sequel was put in motion immediately, with the writing gig becoming one of the hottest assignments in town. The update deviated from the 1984 original in that the latest story was set in China; a 1986 sequel saw the action go from the U.S. to Japan. The new sequel could try to keep the reversal going and seek to bring its cast to the U.S. Columbia would not reveal the setting or the plot for the new movie."

Besides Kung Fu Panda, the writers created Showtime's Sleeper Cell and wrote the screenplay for Nottingham, which ultimately became Ridley Scott's Robin Hood.
