You’re damn right.

It’s been 19 years since we’ve seen the iconic John Shaft character on the big screen. That will change this summer.

On June 14th Shaft, the fifth movie in the iconic franchise, will hit the big screen. The movie was directed by Tim Story and will star Richard Roundtree as Shaft number one, Samuel L. Jackson as Shaft number two, and Jessie Usher as Shaft number three — the latest black private detective in the family.
