Jaden Smith is the Karate Kid -- FIRST LOOK

Check out this new still from Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith‘s upcoming movie, The Karate Kid!

The 11-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith shared with People mag about his new role.

Jaden shared, “I trained every day for four months with Master Wu [the film's fight coordinator]. We did a lot of stretching.”

Jackie, who plays maintence man Mr. Han in the remake, said of Jaden‘s work ethic, “He took the training very seriously. I was very impressed with him. Jaden had a lot of respect for me as his teacher, even off the set. He is professional as many adult actors who have been in the business for years.”

The Karate Kid kicks into theaters on June 11, 2010.
