The Bodyguard starring Kevin Costner and the late Whitney Houston is getting a remake.
According to Variety, Matthew López, the Tony-nominated playwright of “The Inheritance,” has been hired to write a reimagining of the iconic Whitney Houston film at Warner Bros.
The new movie will be inspired by the 1992 romantic drama, which starred Houston and Kevin Costner. The original grossed more than $400 million at the worldwide box office and has what is considered the bestselling movie soundtrack of all time, with several chart-topping original songs from Houston.
No word yet on who will portray the Whitney Houston character Rachel or her bodyguard.
Because this is still one of my favorite movies of all time and I’m forever a Whitney fan.
