Vengeance story penned by 'Karate Kid's' Kamen

Freddie Prinze Jr. will star in an as-yet-untitled martial arts project from Miramax Films. Pic is based on a pitch from “Karate Kid” scribe Robert Mark Kamen.

Kamen, who co-wrote “A Walk in the Clouds” and recently sold Miramax the thriller spec “Leaving Eden,” pitched the project to Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein, production co-prexy Bob Osher, development and production veep Michelle Raimo and director of creative affairs Louis Anderman.
