Samuel L. Jackson & Jessie T. Usher Start Filming 'Shaft' Reboot

Samuel L. Jackson and Jessie T. Usher have officially begun production on their upcoming movie Shaft!

The 69-year-old Kong: Skull Island actor and the 25-year-old Survivor’s Remorse star were spotted on set on Tuesday (January 30) outside a mosque in Atlanta.

In Shaft, previously referred to as Son of Shaft, Samuel will reprise the role he played in the John Singleton-directed 2000 reboot of the Gordon Parks-directed 1971 action film.

Jessie will play the son of detective John Shaft, who, “after long being estranged from his father, finds himself teamed up with him. The young man is an FBI agent, a cyber expert, and the partnership with dad is an uneasy collision of old school meets new school,” according to Deadline.

Shaft is set to hit theaters on June 14, 2019.
