A pitch that would make even Cuff and Link retreat into their shells!
Two franchises seemingly left for dead that I’m elated were brought back to life the last few years are “Rocky” and “The Karate Kid”! I’m life-long fans of both and will be till my dying day. But pre-”Cobra Kai”, Ralph Macchio evidently heard some waaaaay out there pitches to ‘Reiki’ the franchise back into existence. Macchio’s favorite one is a doozy!
“What if Rocky Balboa had a kid and Daniel-san had a kid and they were both f---ups and you, Ralph and Stallone, come together between New Jersey and Philadelphia to join in a Miyagi/Mickey style of fight training. People would go nuts!”
First reaction: Say what?!?!
Second reaction: What would they call this Oscar winner? “Eye of the Banzai”?!
And lastly: How soon before it comes to theaters?!
