Deadline reports that Jessie T. Usher has signed on to star in New Line Cinema’s Son of Shaft as the titular child of the hardcore cop. Usher previously played another on screen offspring as Will Smith’s son in Independence Day: Resurgence.

The outlet also reports that Samuel L. Jackson is negotiating a deal to return for the film having starred in the 2000 reboot by John Singleton as the nephew of the original John Shaft, originally played by Richard Roundtree, who is also in negotiations to return. Look for a Shaft family reunion to hit the big screen in the very near future.

Usher will play the estranged son of the detective in the film, in which he’s forced to team up with his father. As an FBI agent and cyber expert, the young and old Shafts will butt heads throughout the new film.

Tim Story, best known for Fox’s first two Fantastic Four movies from 2005 and 2007, will direct the film, which has a script by Kenya Barris (Girls Trip, black-ish). Story has carved out a healthy run of recent comedy hits, including the two Think Like a Man films and both Ride Along movies.
