Oscar-nominated director John Singleton - known for films including Boyz N The Hood and his remake of detective movie Shaft - has died at the age of 51.
A family statement confirmed the influential filmmaker fell ill in hospital last Wednesday and had been admitted to intensive care.
Born in Los Angeles, Singleton acted as a trailblazer for African-American directors throughout the 1990s.
