Sahara filmmaker Breck Eisner is set to direct the Karate Kid sequel.
Eisner is taking over from Harald Zwart, who directed 2010's film The Karate Kid, which starred Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan.
The two actors will reprise their roles as Dre Parker and Mr. Han, respectively, according to Deadline.com.
The new series of films serve as a reboot of the original franchise starring Ralph MACchio and Pat Morita.
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
