We've gotten more used to seeing Joshua Jackson on small screens in recent years, with the likes of The Affair and Fatal Attraction. But he's headed back to cinemas with a big gig – Jackson will appear alongside Jackie Chan, Ralph Macchio and Ben Wang in Sony's new Karate Kid film.

With I'm Not Okay With This' Jonathan Entwistle directing from a script by Peter Rabbit writer Rob Lieber, a lot about the new film is being kept quiet for now, but we do know that it'll switch the story from its usual Southern California locales to the East Coast of the States. Macchio and Chan's presence, points to Daniel LaRusso and Mr. Han teaming up to train a new youngster in martial arts (American Born Chinese star Wang).

How Jackson fits in is similarly a mystery, but we could easily see him deploying smooth charm as a wrong 'un. The only confirmed detail we have is a set release date for 13 December, so they'd better get wax on with filming.
