New Line Cinema‘s action comedy, opening in theaters on June 14, 2019, is the next chapter in the film franchise featuring the coolest private eye on any New York City block.
Tim Story (the Ride Along and Think Like a Man franchises) directs this all-new take on a legend, starring Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Kong: Skull Island), Jessie T. Usher (Survivor’s Remorse, Almost Christmas), Regina Hall (Girls Trip, Barbershop: The Next Cut), Alexandra Shipp (Straight Outta Compton, X-Men: Apocalypse), Matt Lauria (Kingdom, Friday Night Lights), Titus Welliver (Argo, Bosch), Cliff “Method Man” Smith (Keanu, Train Wreck), 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.
Shaft has received and R rating for pervasive language, violence, sexual content, some drug material and brief nudity.
