The Bodyguard is the latest film getting the remake treatment, and Warner Bros. has hired Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer to re-write the 1992 classic.
The original starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, and Deadline reports that the reboot will reflect â€œthe world of Twitter, Google Maps and [gossip blogs which have] made access to celebrities easier than ever.â€ Costner played a former Secret Service agent hired to protect a pop diva with a stalker, and this version will have a former Iraqi war vet playing the part.
It was previously reported that Rihanna and Channing Tatum would play the main characters, but the R&B starlet's rep shot down those reports last year. So here's our question: Who do YOU think should play Whitney in Kevin in this updated version?
Would it kill anyone in Hollywood to write an original screenplay these days? Ugh.
