Son of Shaft (TBA)

Who's the black private dick
That's a sex machine to all the chicks? (Shaft)
You're damn right

Who is the man that would risk his neck for his brother, man? (Shaft)
Can ya dig it?




And yes, the OG Shaft Richard Roundtree is coming back too!


Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: New Line and director Tim Story have chosen Jessie T. Usher to play the progeny of detective John Shaft in Son of Shaft, which is gearing up to begin production later this fall. Samuel L. Jackson is negotiating a deal to return to reprise the role he played in the John Singleton-directed reboot of the Gordon Parks-directed 1971 action classic. Also returning, per sources, will be Richard Roundtree, who starred in the original film and returned in the 2000 film, in which Jacksonís character played his nephew. The script for the new film is by Kenya Barris.

The studio and filmmakers searched for months to find the right young actor for the splashy role, before deciding the right guy is Usher. Usherís biggest role to date came in Independence Day: Resurgence. He returns as the lead of the Starz series Survivorís Remorse, with the fourth season beginning August 20. He will play the son of the detective, who, after long being estranged from his father, finds himself teamed up with him. The young man is an FBI agent, a cyber expert, and the partnership with dad is an uneasy collision of old school meets new school.

CAA and MGMT Entertainment rep Usher. The new Shaft film is produced by Davis Entertainmentís John Davis and Barris, the black-ish creator. Story is repped by UTA and Barris by CAA and Principato-Young. Jackson is ICM Partners and Anonymous Content and Stone Manners Salsners Agency and Patrick McMinn Management.

Sam Jackson back as Shaft

His remake of Shaft is one of my favourite films.



Hope they bring back Busta Rhymes for this too.

Ah yes, Tim Story...Director of such hits like "Taxi", "Fantastic Four", and "Ride Along".

I am sure this will bust all the blocks.

Re: Son of Shaft (TBA)

I'm not optimistic with Tim Story at the helm. I hope it's good. Love the Roundtree Shaft's and like the SLJ one.

Why are they making the lead Shaft anything besides a private detective? We've already seen the transition in the SLJ one of cop to private detective. Do we need to see it again with Shaft Jr. as an FBI agent that probably becomes a private detective after something happens to make him lose faith in the system the same way that SLJ's character did?

Wait and see I guess.

Re: Son of Shaft (TBA)

Hello I think this could be a good film if the writing is good and they don't scrimp on the budget .

Yours

Re: Son of Shaft (TBA)

Is this a publicity shot or they actually going to dress alike in the movie? Also, Shaft Jr. looks the least cool of the three. SLJ and Roundtree may overshadow him on screen.
