New Line Cinema has acquired the rights to the "Shaft" franchise and is developing a reboot. As in the 2000 reboot where Samuel L. Jackson played the legendary detective’s nephew, the new one will reportedly be a loose sequel and focus on the son of John Shaft. It will be set in New York City. Jessie T. Usher will star as the estranged son of the detective in the film, in which he’s forced to team up with his father. As an FBI agent and cyber expert, the young and old Shafts will butt heads throughout the new film.
