Method Man Brings His Acting Skills To ‘Shaft’ Sequel Cast
New Line Cinema is bringing John Shaft back to the big screen, but it wouldn’t be as high without adding Method Man to the sequel’s cast.
Samuel L. Jackson is reprising the role of John Shaft in New Line Cinema’s reboot, which will also add Clifford “Method Man” Smith to its cast.
The plotline of Shaft finds Jackson being an estranged father to his son, played by Jessie T. Usher, who, after a long time, finds himself teamed up together. Method Man has been cast as an old friend of John Shaft’s (Jackson) from the neighborhood.
Tim Story is directing the sequel from a script by Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow. Regina Hall, Alexandria Shipp and Richard Roundtree will also star.
Shaft is slated for release into theaters on June 14, 2019.
