.Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anthony Mackie to play shaft..
New Line/Warner Bros are in the swings of rebooting the already once rebooted franchise Shaft.

Shaft who was originally portrayed by the late Richard Roundtree in the 1970’s and then in 2000 by Sammuel L Jackson is set to make another come back.

The orogonal series centered around detective Detective John Shaft, and when the franchsie was rebooted with Jackson he took on the role of  his nephew who was incidently called ‘ John Shaft’.

We do not know if this is going to be a complete reboot, or a continuation from what has already been with the audiences being assumed to know who Shaft is. The Wrap also reports that producer John Davis (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), will be developing the property and that there isn’t an actor attached to the lead yet.

With this is mind in seems that we should expect the rumour mill to begin , with who to cast in the lead role.  So lets get this started here with 2 perfect candidates being in Captain America star Anthony Mackie, and 12 years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Lets hope what ever direction they decide to move in, they go back to the roots and make this a meaty crime movie.
