Shaft (2000)

 

Singleton attempted an update to this classic Blaxploitation film. Samuel L. Jackson starred as the nephew of John Shaft (Richard Roundtree). Also a detective, Jackson is called to investigate the racially-motivated murder of Trey Howard (Mekhi Phifer). The film opened number one at the box office when it debuted in June 2000.
