Fans of Shaft we’re happy to let you know that production on Son of Shaft has officially begun and to celebrate, Isaac Hayes’ son posted a picture of himself along with Richard Roundtree, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jessie Usher.
This particular Shaft project has been in development for years now, and then last year they finally made announcment that Tim Story would be directing the new project that Roundtree and Jackson were both returning to the movie. Joining the movie is new coming Jessie T. Usder who is set to play a major role.
Tim Story has spoken about the movie a few times over the last year and he promises that the movie will not be just a straight up action movie this time around. Instead, the movie will focus more on the comedic aspect of Shaft, which is something that fans have been waiting for. And now 3 generations will unite for Son of Shaft.
Personally we’re pretty excited to see Shaft finally getting it’s comeback and we’re really excited Samuel L. Jackson is back you just can’t do Shaft without him. In the mean time Son of Shaft is set for a June 2019 release. Will you be checking it out?
