It will reportedly have a comedic bent in its latest incarnation. The eponymous character was first portrayed by Richard Roundtree in 1971 as a private detective hired by a crime lord to retrieve a missing young girl. Roundtree continued the character with two sequels and a short-lived TV version.
In 2000 Samuel L. Jackson carried the franchise as Shaft's nephew in a John Singleton-directed action-thriller that co-starred Vanessa Williams, Toni Collette, Jeffrey Wright and Christian Bale.
