Original Karate Kid On Remake: You Can’t Touch This!

The original Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio, who played teenaged Daniel LaRusso in the 1984 classic and the following two sequels, is less than pleased with the fact that Will Smith and company are going to try and remake the classic film.

In the interview EVERYBODY was waiting for, Macchio recently told MTV.com, “It feels pretty good that some people are pretty angry that they’re trying to remake The Karate Kid. It feels good that the public feels you don’t touch certain things. Some times you go back to that, and probably shouldn’t. From my personal view, the filling the void of what Mr. Miyagi was – and the magic of that character – is going to be the toughest task. I (also) don’t know where the romantic story-arc goes (with Smith’s Daniel) at that age.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself, Will Smith is one of the best in the game, and he’s going to ruin a classic even if it’s his finest work.
