Sean "Diddy" Combs will be taking a very ambitious leap by possibly playing the lead role in a remake of the 1990 cult classic King of New York.
Christopher Walken played the role of Frank White in the original film about a former drug lord who returns from prison determined to wipe out his competition.
It's a tough role, but Diddy has done well in movies such as Monster's Ball, Made and Get Him To the Greek.
The music mogul is teaming with Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer to bring the new film to life, according to the New York Post.
"Sean optioned the rights to remake ‘King of New York’ for two years. The film is a cult classic, and it will be great to remake it. Our version won’t be exactly the same, but will have the same hard-core gangster feel. Sean wants to be in it, he was amazing in ‘Monster’s Ball,’ and such strong characters sit perfectly with him," Grazer told the Post.
Laurence Fishburne and Wesley Snipes also starred in the 1990 version. It will be interesting to see who gets cast in those roles.
Do you think Diddy can pull of his part?
