New ‘Shaft’ Featurette Unites 3 Generations of Stars, Talks Legacy

Warmer Bros. Pictures

The new “Shaft” hits theaters this month, so it’s time to look at what it means to be John Shaft.
Warner Bros. Pictures has released a featurette focused on the legacy of Shaft, and it brings together the three men whose characters go by some variation of John Shaft: original “Shaft” star Richard Roundtree (John Shaft), and his movie nephew and grandnephew, Samuel L. Jackson (John Shaft II) and Jessie Usher (John “JJ” Shaft Jr.). In the upcoming film, they unite to uncover the truth about a murder.
The trio, along with co-star Regina Hall, all discuss the meaning of Shaft.
“Shaft is legendary,” Jackson says in the featurette. “He’s the best dresser, he’s the toughest guy.”
There’s also footage from the upcoming action flick. Watch below.

Roundtree starred in 1971’s “Shaft” and two sequels. Jackson’s “Shaft” came in 2000, and now the latest film in the franchise is due to hit theaters on June 14.
