Diddy's Plans For 'Black Ocean's Eleven'

Hip-hop entrepreneur SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS wants to make a OCEAN'S ELEVEN-style movie starring contemporary black icons.

The rapper feels the 2001 heist thriller, which boasted an ensemble cast starring GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON, BRAD PITT and JULIA ROBERTS, didn't appeal to black audiences.

Combs - who has cut his own acting teeth with roles in movie MONSTER'S BALL and on New York's Broadway in play A RAISIN IN THE SUN - says, "I was watching Ocean's Eleven and I just couldn't relate to it. You have all these black icons. CHRIS ROCK or CHRIS TUCKER in comedy, DENZEL WASHINGTON and JAMIE FOXX in acting, me and JAY-Z in music, what about us?

"It's about time to put the greatest black icons in a film together. We're not running around in 'do-rags and low riders anymore."
