The Bodyguard is getting a makeover. According to Variety, Warner Bros. has green lit the remake of the 1992 classic film, which also produced one of the greatest movie R&B soundtracks ever.
The original film starred R&B veteran Whitney Houston, who ironically played a famous singer, and her bodyguard, portrayed by Kevin Costner.
The remake will see the male lead played by an Iraqi war vet but no word on who the famous singer will be. The film will be produced by Warner-based Dan Lin producing, whose credits include both “Sherlock Holmes” films.
Maybe Beyonce or Jennifer Hudson?
