The guys are playing three generations of the famous character. Richard starred in the original 1971 film Shaft and its two sequels.
Samuel rebooted the series in 2000 while playing Richard‘s nephew.
Jessie is joining the franchise this time around as Samuel‘s son, “a young cyber expert FBI agent who, despite being estranged from his father, is forced to work with him on a case. It becomes a collision between old school and new school,” according to Deadline.
