It’s been over a year since we first announced the news of a sequel to one of the most famous franchises, starring Jessie T. Usher, Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Roundtree, but the trailer to Shaft is finally here.
The classic hit theaters in 1971, and starred Roundtree as the private detective who is hired to rescue a Harlem mobster’s kidnapped daughter. Jackson starred as the nephew of the original John Shaft in the 2000 sequel. The fifth installment reportedly follows Usher “as the estranged son of John Shaft II, a cybersecurity expert who’s forced to team up with his estranged father and great uncle.” Alexander Shipp and Regina Hall also join the cast.
Three generations of Shaft? You damn right (you had to know that was coming). The film hits theaters June 14.
