SHAFT is the next chapter in the film franchise featuring the coolest private eye on any New York City block.
Tim Story directs this all-new take on a legend, starring Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T., Regina Hall, Alexandra Shipp, “Method Man” Smith, and Richard Roundtree, the original John Shaft.
JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Usher), 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 (Jackson) 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.
More Shaft than you can handle. Only in theaters June 14!
