Sean 'P Diddy' Combs is planning to make an Ocean's 11-style heist movie - but with an all-black cast and wants top African-American actors like Denzel Washington and Jamie Foxx to take part reports The New York Daily News.

"I was watching Ocean's 11 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. I'm trying to hit the big screen, baby. I'm trying for my head to be six-feet tall" said the man who's appearance as a presenter at this year's Oscars drew criticism from several corners.

Thanks to 'Wilkes'.
