Samuel L. Jackson has just been cast as the urban martial arts bad-ass Sho’nuff for Columbia Pictures’ upcoming remake of Berry Gordy’s 1985 cult classic The Last Dragon. Watch the clip below (featuring the late Julius Carry as Sho), then close your eyes and envision the greatness that will be Samuel L. as the Shogun of Harlem (even if he does seem a bit old for the part).

This could be a fun flick. And while I don’t care who is cast in Taimak‘s role (so long as it’s not Jet Li), I do wonder who’ll take Vanity’s part. Thoughts?
