    The SLJ one wasnt bad.

    There's only one choice for Shaft if this goes through. Idris Elba. Forget James Bond make him Shaft

    I always thought Don Cheadle would have been more interesting in the role. Give him another shot.

    They should just cast Daniel Craig now. I can see the tagline already:

    "They try to take their Bond. Instead they took their Shaft."

    Casting Daniel Craig as Shaft makes as much sense as casting Elba as Bond....

    But in all seriousness, I can see Elba as Shaft.

    I liked the Samuel L. Jackson Shaft. Jackson was badass as always, plus it had Christian Bale and Jeffrey Wright as the bad guys.

    Lucy Lui is too soft. You need a tough Shaft. Angelina Jolie?

    I love Elba, but let's give some other black dudes a chance at bat for once. He can't be in EVERYTHING. :o

    Pretty sure it's going to come down to Elba and Cera.

    I like Faraci's idea...

    If you're referring to the line, it's a quote from the movie.

    I thought the SLJ Shaft movie was pretty weak. I think a reboot could work, though.

    But yeah, I'd rather see a Black Dynamite sequel. :D

    Or maybe a DOLEMITE reboot?

    I know it's a quote, I'm asking did he ever please any booty literally?

    Robert Downey Jr. for Shaft. Just let him go blackface Tropic Thunder again.

    No but seriously Chadwick Boseman might be a nice fit. Might be a bit young though.

    Love SLJ's Shaft. It was a good movie. John Singleton did a great job with it....
