“The Bodyguard” being remade, but whom should they cast?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: And I … will always … love you! Just not enough, so you’re going to have to be remade.

Don’t feel bad, “The Bodyguard.” Anything with sentimental value and nostalgic worth is being dug up by Hollywood’s eager face-lifters. It’s just your turn in the barrel, so to speak.

The 1992 romantic thriller, starring Kevin Costner as a bodyguard falling for the diva singer (Whitney Houston) he was hired to protect, will be remade for a modern audience by Warner Bros., THR reports.

Screenwriters Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer have been tapped to update the story, with an order that the bodyguard character be an Iraqi war veteran.

It’s understandable why the studio might want to dust off the property. It earned $410.9 million back in ’92. But the remake needs a hit song to accompany it, because the one thing people remember about Lawrence Kasdan’s version of the story was Houston’s to-the-rafters vocal on the Dolly Parton track, “I Will Always Love You.” Will they keep it? Ditch it? Hire Rihanna to play the singer and have her belt it out? Stay tuned.
