New York City police detective John Shaft (nephew of the original 1970s detective) goes on a personal mission to make sure the son of a real estate tycoon is brought to justice after a racially-motivated murder.
John Singleton wanted Don Cheadle as Shaft, but Scott Rudin insisted that a major box-office draw should play the role. Wesley Snipes was also considered.
April Fool, motherfucker. Told you not to make me run!
Shaft parks his car by the sidewalk on a rainy night, the car is totally dry despite having been driven in the rain.
