Was anyone clamoring for a new take on a bad mother shut your mouth? Well, New Line is hoping you’re still talking about Shaft as there is reportedly a reboot of the series in the works. Starting off as a 1971 film starring Robert Roundtree, and picked up again in 2000 with Samuel L. Jackson, we’re getting a new film essentially rebooting the series with a new, younger actor.
It’s still far too early in production for real details, so we don’t know if it’s continuing the trend of having each Shaft be related or is starting something new overall. But, I’m interested either way…as long as this film doesn’t give us the shaft.[via The Wrap]
