Samuel L. Jackson is back, but he’s not alone. The new trailer for the latest installment in the ‘Shaft‘ franchise has been released, and it includes three generations of private eyes.
The film will feature Jackson as John Shaft II, who starred in the Shaft film from 2000. We’ll also be introduced to his son John Shaft Jr., and the original John Shaft played by Richard Roundtree.
“The movie follows JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. He may be a cyber security expert with a degree from MIT, but to uncover the truth behind his best friend’s untimely death, he needs an education only his dad can provide. Absent throughout JJ’s youth, the legendary locked-and-loaded John Shaft agrees to help his progeny navigate Harlem’s heroin-infested underbelly. And while JJ’s own FBI analyst’s badge may clash with his dad’s trademark leather duster, there’s no denying family. Besides, Shaft’s got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that’s professional and personal.”
In addition to the names mentioned above, the cast will also include Regina Hall, Alexandra Shipp and Matt Lauria.
Shaft is set to be released June 14. Check out the trailer below…
