It looks like the Whitney Houston classic The Bodyguard is getting a remake

16/09/2021

The Bodyguard was a global box office hit in 1992.

The Bodyguard is reportedly the latest classic film set to get the remake treatment.

The 1992 drama featured Whitney Houston in her first acting role as a music superstar and Kevin Costner as the former secret service agent hired to protect her.

It was a global hit and its soundtrack is one of the best-selling in movie history thanks to songs including I Will Always Love You and I Have Nothing.

A reimagined version is in the works, with acclaimed playwright Matthew Lopez writing the script, according to Variety.

It is said to be in development at studio Warner Bros.

No casting choices were announced.

American singer Whitney Houston makes a rare appearance for her fans at the HMV store in Oxford Circus, London.

Houston, who died aged 48 in 2012, played actress and singer Rachel Marron in The Bodyguard.

Costner’s Frank Farmer gets hired to protect her from a stalker, but the pair fall in love.

The soundtrack won the Grammy Award for album of the year.

The Bodyguard was dismissed as cheesy and melodramatic by critics upon its release and received seven nominations at the Golden Raspberry Awards, the parody ceremony recognising Hollywood missteps.

The nods including worst picture, worst actor for Costner, 66, and worst actress for Houston.

Despite the critical opprobrium, The Bodyguard has proved to be one of the most successful movies of all time and enduringly popular with audiences across the world.
