Shaft reboot scheduled to be released this summer
Jesse T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence) has been chosen to play the son of Samuel L. Jackson's John Shaft this reboot of the iconic movie. Samuel L. Jackson will return as John Shaft from the 2000 New Line reboot, while the original John Shaft, Richard Roundtree, who was established as the uncle of Samuel L. Jackson's character in the reboot, will also return to reprise his role.
Deadline reports that Jesse T. Usher will be playing the "estranged son" of John Shaft (Samuel L Jackson) in this Shaft reboot, but he finds himself having to team up with his old man. Like his father and uncle before him, Jesse T. Usher's character is an FBI agent and a cyber expert, and pairing up with his father is described by the site as, "an uneasy collision of old school meets new school."
This Warner Bros. Pictures film will hit theaters on June 14, 2019
This movie should be a bad motha... Shut yo mouth!
