Jessie T. Usher (Independence Day: Resurgence, Survivor’s Remorse ) is playing the newest member of the Shaft family in the Tim Story directed filmThe script for the new film is by Kenya Barris.

JJ, aka John Shaft Jr. (Jessie T. 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 (Samuel L. 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 coat, there’s no denying family. Besides, Shaft’s got an agenda of his own, and a score to settle that’s professional and personal.

Samuel L. Jackson is back in the role he played in the John Singleton-directed reboot of the Gordon Parks-directed 1971 film.

Also returning is Richard Roundtree, who starred in the original film and returned in the 2000 film, in which Jackson’s character played his nephew. The film also stars Regina Hall and Alexandra Shipp.

Shaft is out on 14th June 2019.
