The poster showcases the original ’70s Shaft, Richard Roundtree, our current Shaft in Samuel L. Jackson, and the newest addition to the family, John Shaft III, played by Jessie Usher. They’re all wearing the same flashy trench coat with a tagline that states “More Shaft than you can handle.”
The sequel is expected to follow Usher’s Shaft III as he reconciles with his estranged father (Jackson). The two are expected to join forces with Roundtree to solve a Harlem murder mystery. It’s a family affair.
Accompanying the official poster is a new teaser clip, in preparation for the release of a full trailer tomorrow.
