“Shaft” Sequel Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher & Regina Hall Trailer Released [VIDEO]
It was announced in 2017, Jessie T. Usher had joined Samuel L. Jackson in the reboot of “Shaft.” The new trailer for the impending film dropped Wednesday and features Jackson, Usher, Regina Hall, Richard Roundtree, and Alexandria Shipp.
According to IMDb, the film will follow John Shaft Jr. – played by Usher – as he works with his father to figure out the factuality behind his best friend’s abrupt death. The trailer features a lot of action, a smidge of comedy, and boastful arrogance; much like 2000’s “Shaft.”
The film will also encompass three generations of Shaft, which include Jackson, Usher, and “Being Mary Jane”‘s Roundtree. Hall shared a movie poster of the forthcoming film to Instagram Wednesday. She captioned the image,
More Shaft Than You Can Handle. Coming at you soon… #Shaft
The film is due in theaters June 14, 2019. Shaft is also the opening night film at the American Black Film Festival on June 12th.
