Eddie Murphy is working on a reboot of the classic film, Coming To America. Not to mention, LeBron James is currently working a on a remake of Space Jam and a reboot of Lion King is on the way. With all of that going, one reboot that is proving to be extremely successful is the Karate Kid reboot, Cobra Kai.
