Breck Eisner will reportedly direct 'Karate Kid 2' which will see Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan reunite in the martial arts action movie.
Breck Eisner has been confirmed as director for 'Karate Kid 2'.
Eisner's famous works include the gritty horror film 'The Crazies' and 2005 action-comedy adventure 'Sahara', starring Matthew McConaughey.
The pressure for Eisner to deliver will be high after the previous installment grossed $56 million on its opening weekend in the US and ended with $343 million worldwide when the Harald Zwart directed the film in 2010.
'Karate Kid 2' is a risk for Sony who has placed invested a lot of money into in the care and feeding of franchises with global appeal as the 1984 original is still considered by fans as a classic.
Meanwhile, Eisner is directing 'The Last Witch Hunter' which sees Vin Diesel star as the anti-hero on the wrong side of authority who is constantly being hunted.
'Ten Thousand Saints' is an upcoming music drama set in 1987's New York starring Ethan Hawke & Asa Butterfield.
The pair recently enjoyed their first visit to the interactive experience in New York.
