<i>Karate Kid</i> Director To Take On <i>Bakugan</i>

Move over, Transformers: Bakugan has already taken the top spot for toys, and now it's about to steal your box office crown as well.

Essentially Pokemon with more fighting and strategy, Bakugan Battle Brawlers has been named 'Toy of the Year' for two consecutive years by the Toy Industry Association, and now Harald Zwart, director of this year's hit Karate Kid remake, is attached to direct Universal's movie based on the popular franchise, which has also spawned an animated series. No news yet on casting or release date, but summer 2012 seems a likely contender for the latter. Maybe you should all brush up while you have the chance.
