Samuel L. Jackson just keeps on getting the coolest roles. He's already played a Jedi Master, Shaft, Jules Winnfield, and Nick Fury. Now, the man is preparing for yet another badass portrayal.
Jackson will star as Sho'nuff, the Shogun of Harlem, in Columbia Pictures' upcoming remake of the '80s cult hit The Last Dragon, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Sho'nuff, as many of you will know, was prone to asking his group of goons egotistical questions like, "Am I the baddest mofo low down around this town?" To which they would always reply, "Sho'nuff!" It's a role Jackson seems destined for.
Wu-Tang Clan's RZA is producing the movie with Dallas Jackson (Uncle P) writing the script.
The plot will be updated, but reportedly in keeping with the original story which follows a young martial arts student named Leroy Green on the streets of New York, as he attempts to attain the highest level of martial arts mastery, known as the Last Dragon. Those who attain it possess the power of the Glow.
"I'm a huge fan of the original and look forward to bringing Sho'nuff into the 21st century," Jackson told THR.
