Cue the "has Hollywood officially run out of ideas?" comments now: "The Bodyguard" is the latest movie to get a big-screen reboot.
The 1992 film — which spawned a best-selling soundtrack that included "I Will Always Love You," "I'm Every Woman" and "I Have Nothing" — starred Kevin Costner as a Secret Service Agent assigned with protecting a singer (Whitney Houston) from a crazed fan. While safeguarding her body, he also captures her heart.
According to Deadline, the new movie will have a more modern twist. This time around, it's an Iraq war vet trying to keep the diva out of danger, and thanks to today's world of Twitter, Google Maps, and TMZ that won't be easy.
As of yet, no actors are attached to this tuned-up version of "The Bodyguard," which begs the question: Who would you like to see in the leading roles?
Fantasia and Hugh Jackman or Jamie Foxx
I think Fantasia and Jamie Foxx would also be great for a Mahogany remake.
Fantasia would be great. She has the pipes to breathe life into the songs like "I Have Nothing" and "I Will Always Love You" and have some acting experience. She would possibly needs to get an acting coach to help sharpen her acting chops. Whitney wasn't an experience actress, but she got the part because Kevin Costner fought for her. So I think Fantasia should be hands down a great choice to play Whitney Houston's role and Hugh Jackman can play Kevin Costner's role or Jamie Foxx because Fantasia and Jamie have great chemistry.
She would also be great for The Bodyguard musical when it comes to Broadway sometime in 2014.
Taylor Lautner And Jordin Sparks perfect for bodyguard remake, but I think they would be perfect in a remake of Mr. and Mrs. Loving.
Taylor Lautner and Jordin Sparks.
Ugh I bet they are going to do it in 3D too.
i think they should cast hottie Alex O'Loughlin and Jennifer Lopez. She can diva it up with the best of them, she can sing and he is so flippin hot! They had great on screen chemistry in The Backup Plan. Might create some juicy problems between her Mark !
I be rammin'. I be jammin'. I be butt slammin'. Its all good when there's goo under da hood! Time for me to rim the knob! I'll be back soon to pop off to all the jigs!

What about whitneys kid with Kevin costner. Let say she left and realized she was preggers. Then 20 ish years later an actress like ryhanna or someone gets stalked. Whitney and Kevin could make cameos. He still looks good. Writters need to call me. I got some ideas. No nasty comments on people it not nice unless you have the balls to say it to their face
Maybe Jennifer Hudson and the Rock
Ughh. Make it stop.
Christian Bale, as costner And Beyonce as Houston
This movie was a all time hit. And if anyone should play the part it should be all the a listers that starred in the movie. And not only that it would be a Great come back for Whitney Houston her and Kevin Costner were the Best in this movie such a great love story.
Alicia Keys and Ben Foster!
...as if the original wasn't a big enough pile of horse crap!
Jennifer Hudson would be amazing!
No – wait, this is better . . . .
Matt Damon and Britney Spears
Yeah you know us N!gger we all on welfare and we never did nothing for this great county we just dance and make baby's. Thks for give us n!ggers a chance thks Mr white man.
Booo! Definitely wouldn't waste my time with a sh**y movie like this.
I'm a n!gger an your right I love fried chicken cooked by my white blond b!tch.
I'm a n!gger an your I love fried chicken cooked by my white blond b!tch.
I truely think that hollywood has run out of ideas, their is nothing new or exviting about thestories coming out of tincel town. I think that the reason that people are so agianst this moviebecause its an ethnic cenima movie with a white man falling in love with a black woman. I also think that who ever they get to play the two laeading roles should be high caliber actors and the story line should be exceptional. To go over and be excepted by the american public.
How about a re-imagining of the Bodyguard "franchise" with Lucy Lawless as the bodyguard and Justin Beiber as the singer. Did I spell Beiber right? I hate misspelling things.
They should make it with only white characters...no nig nigs. Unless they need drug dealers or homeless people.
Out of all the things to say, thats the best you can do. Wow you would think that we would have moved past the racism card by now, get past it please!
why, just why?
Jennifer Hudson and Dwayne Rock Johnson
I think it would be a great movie if they bout back whitney and kevin as retired parents of a hit star daughter beyonce or keshia coles and let them ave jay z or ti be the bodyguard but this time body guard dies savin the singer and she makes or remakes a hit song for him
DID YOU KNOW?
N!GGERS ARE GOOD AT EATING FRIED CHICKEN AND LIVING IN SLUMS.
Wow how foolish is that!
Daniel Craig and Zoe Saldana might make a good pairing . . .
You guys are Hysterical! LMAO :D
How about RiRi and Ryan Phillippe? I hear they are already practicing for the role (wink wink)
Whomever said Britney and steven segal hahahahahahha couldn't stop laughing!!
Body guard remake should have Jennifer Hudson and will smith.
I want Madonna and Harrison ford. Or Russel Crowe. And I want the man to have a nice hot shower scene.
DID YOU KNOW?
N!GGERS ARE GOOD AT LOWERING PROPERTY VALUES AND ROBBING PEOPLE.
let's leave Whitney out of this. How about Christina Aguilera & Idris Elba? or Christina & Shemar Moore? Jennifer Hudson & Josh Duhamel? Or Jamie Foxx & Gwen Stefani?
DID YOU KNOW?
N!GGERS ARE GOOD AT BUYING CRACK WITH FOOD STAMPS.
DID YOU KNOW?
N1GGERS ARE GOOD AT SMOKING CRACK AND BEING SLAVES.
Jennifer hudson and bradley cooper
I agree!! forgot all about Bradley! He's a great choice for Jennifer!!!! and she sings wonderfully!!!!!!
Jason Stratham, Channing Tatum or Ashton Kutcher with Beyonce, Rihanna (can she act?), Christina Aguilera, Keri Hilson. But seriously, this film is a classic of sorts, why remake it now if ever. Surely there are screenwriters out there with original ideas. Sigh.
Why all the remakes of movies? Can't the screen writers come up with any original ideas for movies now-a-days?
Switch it up Make the Diva that Bieber kid and the bodyguard one of those female wrestlers!w
Jennifer Hudson and The Rock or Vin Diesel
Can Hollywood STOP making remakes. I am so over it!
Betty White and Justin Bieber?
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy
Britney Spears and Matt Damon
just waiting for them to remake the godfather with the cast of jersey shore " leave the gun take the bronzer"
LadyGaga and Gene Simmons, in the KISS makeup
How about Jennifer Hudson & like somebody mentioned before Dwayne Johnson?
Lady GaGa and Gene Simmons in the KISS makeup
William Shatner and Nichelle Nichols.
They HAD to pick a war zone to film the movie about? I won't watch it then, and I don't care WHO they cast in it. I never watch war-torn movies. Too depressing.
One good thing about that movie was Kevin Costner. No, no, that's not what I meant. Because of his receding hairline, he was just beginning to look like Steve McQueen, sort of. Actually, that's all I remember about that movie. At least I remembered something about it.
I love it!
Some suggestions (seriously!):
Rihanna and Brad Pitt
Tamia (singer), Tom Cruise
Jennifer Hudson and George Clooney
If they are serious about this, it needs to be someone who can REALLY sing, so the soundtrack will sell just like the first one. That alone eliminates over half the pop stars out right now.
Why not a muppett version? Ms Piggy and Kermit in the leafs gets my vote.
Eva Longoria as the diva // cougar and the Taylor lautner as the younger bodyguard ...or angelina Jolie as the bodyguard for a little girl on girl love
Does anyone remember the reports after Princess Diana died that she had supposedly agreed to be in a Bodyguard sequel with Kevin Costner?
I'm seeing Ben Affleck in my head for some reason. But I can imagine Josh Duhamel, or Ryan Reynolds too. Whoever it is needs to be pretty to look at. : ) I'm personally ok with them remaking that one. Out with the old. And get a new song please.
Would it need to be a singer necessarily? J. Lo can sing and act...well, sort of. She was good in Selena. But would she still draw the box office? I think Scarlet Johansson sings...don't put her with Ryan though. Yikes. Awkward. It needs to be someone who pulls off superstar paparazzi bait. I know. Lindsay Lohan. She sings too.
Lil Wayne and Snookie!!!
I THINK BRANDY AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
Susan Boyle and Simon Cowell. Nuff Said.
Cher and Rupaul
Rhianna and John Cena
Mark Walberg and Paris Hilton. Seriously.
Justin Bieber, no bodyguard, and drop him into NY Harlem. -Art
so what? more loving than fighting there these days. gay black men would just eat him up!
Justin Timberlake as the singer and Scarlett Johansen as the bodyguard. He's just off his critically acclaimed role on The Social Network and she kicked ass in Iron Man 2.
Elton John and Eminem
Beyonce and Matt Damon.
Why or Why is there yet ANOTHER Hollywood remake? Is there nothing new to show? I know the original did great in 1992 and is one of my favorites but why do we need a remake?
The 1st BodyGuard movie suked. Hollywood must be deparate for remakes to consider this one. How about Mobarek and Quadaaffi as the celeb, and the bodyguard looks the other way. Nice short 5mins film. -Art
You can't spell.
rhianna and chris brown lol
No more remakes of so so movies. Prequels are OK to a point but someone bring out a new idea. You are out there. I can hear you breathing. Come on stand up. give us something fresh. Thank you!
It does not "beg the question". It raises the question. Look it up.
I think it should star Peter North and Kim Kardashian.....
That would be very "in your face." Get it? In your face? Peter North...get it? Get it?
I think Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Maybe called it The Body Guard: Ghetto Love. Cannon and Carey would have natural chemistry, even tho Carey is 60 and Cannon is like 14. Please post thoughts
Jennifer Hudson & Channing Tatum
Beyonce and Idris Elba
And Beyonce should do the entire sound track with some quest appearances!!
Betty White and Will Ferrell...
Pistol "Pete" Rosenblatt....saw him take down a bunch of drunk city kids who were about to get up in Tory Spelling's grill in Las Vegas....of course her wimp brother didn't do anything. Think he took the phone off one guy and smacked him around with it.
Let two hollywood phaggots do the craphole of a movie and have them sucking D!CK thru the hole thing. Just get it over with.
I say Will Smith as the Bodyguard. He's due for a decent dramatic role. I would also say Justin Bieber as the star but make the Bodyguard fall in love with the stars mom instead. Have the villan be the stars manager....
PLEASE NOT BEYONCE!!!
Taylor Swift as the endangered starlet; George Clooney as the bodyguard.
posts are not posting correctly – what's the dang deal?
Another remake?? Are you kidding me???
Really does not seem so long ago the first one was out. Time sure does go by fast.
Why is Hollywood remaking so many tired a** movies!!!!!Are really running out of ideas??????
It would be cooll to see The ROCK play the body guard (I would like to see his romantic side!!)
Christina Aquilara could play the Singer! :)
Jill Scott and Ving Rhames
Rihanna and Channing Tatum
Jenifer Hudson,,,Not sure who the leading man shouild be.
I would love to see Channing Tatum as the body gaurd.... I'm not sure who can replace Whitney though...
ME...ME ME ME...Me and Channing Tatum. I could use his greasy hair and forehead to lube up my rump then he fuk the dog manure out me. YEAH!
Yes Hollywood has run out of ideas, it hasnt even been twenty years yet since this movie first came out.
How about Justine Timberlake (in the Whitney role) and Jennifer Gardner (in Costner's role). LOL
Madonna was Costners first choice for this role back in 92, but after she made fun of him during her Blond Ambition movie, he decided to go with Whitney. Too bad Madonna's big mouth ruined that for her, she would have been good playing herself in the movie.
if you say it's rihanna and sam, you're damn right
Wow, so many hateful and racist comments. Whitney is not the 1st addict in Hollywood, I don’t recall you all commenting on how Downey was caught passed out under some kids bed whenever Iron man comes out. Why the hate? The woman is very talented and has made a huge comeback. If you don’t want to see the movie, don’t. Heck, I thought true grit was the stupidest movie I had ever seen. But there is no reason to be racist jerks. So much for “post racial” America.
For those of you being civil, I do appreciate it.
enough with the dam* remakes of every frikken movie and tv show! sorry but if Hollywood can't think of anything else to make then Hollywood has a serious frikken creativity problem!
I much prefer the Dolly Parton version of the song "I Will Always Love You" (that she wrote) to the overblown, overhyped Whitney Houston version.
even Dolly says that Houston's version is better. If you just like a guitar and harmanica then you need to stick to bluegrass. Even country uses drums occassionally
liam neeson (he was born to play this role) and justin bieber (kid is a cash cow)
Isn't this one of the signs that the apocalypse is upon us?
please Whitney just die. but kill Bobby Brown first, okay?
only if you take Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey 1st. a bonus if its due to an STD
Beyonce and Colin Farrell !!!! would be perfect
Pitiful! Why not leave it alone? Good film – great chemistry between leading actors – good support cast – desirable ending – superb music.
Entertainment pimps suck, Big Time!
Let the one without sin, smoke the 1st rock
Jennifer Hudson would be a good actress for the role. It should be someone who can acoustically sing who doesn't rely on auto-tune to carry them thru their success.
Naw...Jenn H can barely sing and acting no way. She couldnt act her way out of a chitlins package.
Should star Justin Bieber and Willow Smith.
Please, please, please – not Beyonce and not Rihanna. They can't hold a candle to Whitney.
Michael Jackson and a cub scout troop.
I heard dat. Michuh cut of hib weiner an make duh little boys eat it.
Usher and Rihanna.
"The Boddae, ae, ae Guard"
The responses are hysterical! First, I wish they'd leave it alone. Second, if you MUST remake the film, I say Matt Damon and Jennifer Hudson, seriously.
The Rock should take care of Christina A. That dou has all kinds of style going for it !!
Dogs and Michael Vick
Typical plot lines of these remakes of old movies usually just involve seeing what the characters would be like with cellphones. Yawn.
I consider myself an educated man but... dam it. I can't stop laughing at yall.
LAME! there are no words to adequately describe the lameness of this idea.
Roseann Barr and Flava Flay
A 'remake' of a 1992 film?? Seriously?? Wow, that took alot of thought. Enough with the remakes. What happened to originality?? 1992 wasn't really that long ago-and this film could stand on its own without a remake. That's bizarre.
people who use that kind of language are ignorant.
I heard dat. Pass duh fried chickins.
Oh man.... and they squeezed an Iraq angle into it too? Just -gag-. Seriously, who is telling studios this is a good idea?
I don't think that they can do this movie over. I agree that they should think of something else
that will spart the attention of movie goers, give us something that we will be glad to spend our
OMG whoever said Rihanna and Sam Worthington... you are a genius. Yes please!
Let's keep the name-calling out the discussion PLEASE!!
I heard dat. Gimme some watuhmeluh.
I heard dat!!
Well here's another one for the books. Another remake, not surprising since this has become the "remake era". Although I woud've loved to have seen the Diana Ross & Steve McQueen original. As for who plays the part, well, it would be a real gas to see Matt Damon & Christina aguilera play the part.
I don't want to see it at all.
Stupid Hollywood executives. They think they know what they are doing. But I know they don't. Stop w/ this pathetic idea.
i agree with Rhianna, Janet Jackson, Halle or Beyonce....also, there is no excuse for the derogatory language...cnn should immediately remove any comments using that kind of language or not even allow them to be seen in the first place.
Michael Jackson and Macauley Caulkin...Michael is the bodygaurd protecting Macauley from the adults while he tricks Macauley out of his underoos by getting him to drink some jesus juice.
i would love to see Halle Berry or Beyonce in the lead role
Rhianna and Sam Worthington.
I'd prefer to see a remake of Gigli instead of the Bodyguard. Oh wait, I haven't seen the original Gigli yet. I better hurry and rent it. Anybody know where I can find a copy?
Spike Lee and Clint Eastwood.
Wow can whitney get old and die first before they do a remake...
we can only hope
If they're going to remake this dumb movie way not have Steve Austin as the Bodyguard and Janet Jackson as the pop star.
Hhhmmm how about Liam Neeson as the bodyguard? And LiLo after she gets out of jail. I bet she has the spoiled brat role down pat. Or why not a guy singer and a female bodyguard? Sarah Michelle Gellar can save him from zombies (hey shes already done the vampire thing). Maybe josh jackson as the singer...
Terence Howard and Aguilera
Denzel and Mariah Carey.
Usher protecting Justin Bieber. Call it "The Buddy-guard".
MILEY CYRUS (and her salvia) with KANYE WEST!!! Role reversal indeed...
I MEAN FOR REAL U CANT GET A BETTER ONE THEN THIS,WAIST OF MONEY.PR,$ 4 LIFE
I can see lady gaga as the celebrity and tom cruise as the body guard and bad romance song jus makes the film perfect lol jk jk
Mama Cass and a Ham Sandwich.
steven seagal & britney spears. he also cooks.
Rhianna and Chris Brown got my vote also.That wouldgive new meaning to the term "reboot"!
Fergie and a group of starving Haitan black men.
George Clooney and Barack Obama.
Come on guys, not being negative about Whitney..
George Clooney & Jennifer Lopez
Snookie and a 12 pack
Jason Statham protecting Nicki Minaj
Billy Ray Cyrus and Wacka Flaka Flamer.
Ashlee Simpson and Ronnie from Jersey Shore. I hope dreams come true.
George Michael and The Pet Shop Boys.
Ashton Kutcher and Lindsay Lohan.
Hollywood official sucks now......
I'm SOOO glad better movie markets such as Albuquerque and emerging markets are finally taking over as Movie production hubs with good Original films....
Hollywood just BLOWS!!!!!
I live in Albuquerque and in every part of town you can find the white tents and trailers. it does feel like they're taking over the city.
You all are missing the point............this is not about Whitney. I'm sure she's not the only one who has made a mistake, regretted it and it trying to turn her life around. So let the one without a sin cast the first stone!!!! The question was "Who would you like to see star in the movie?" Can we get some real answers to that and stop the Whitney hating?
Mary, you are so right ... thank you for your comment and let's hope some of these hopeless souls read it and take heed.
WELL SAID MARY IM GLAD SOME ONE HAS A BRIAN.JUSTIN B,,,,,M.CYRUS.LOL I CRACK MY SELF UP.
Chaz Bono and Weezy.
Sorry, Hmmm. Didn't add enough m's. :)
Paul Shafer and Sam Waterston. The Plot...Paul saves Sam from being forever strait and lures him into the gay lifestyle.
Oh, God, nooooooooooooo!!!!
The first one was bad enough!!! What the h3ll is Hollywood thinking, anyway? There are so many good books that could be made into movies, and they want to re-make THIS garbage???
Bring back Whitney Houston for a cameo.
Im sorry but Skeletor will not be making an appearance in this movie.
I thought James Carville was Skeletor???
I think Channing Tatum would be good in the Costner role. Beyonce would definitely be the only one I can think of in the Houston role.
... gotta maintain the salt and pepper thing, huh ... i was hopin' for beans and rice (is that wrong?)
The Bodyguard sucked the first time around! Does Hollywood have that much money kicking around that they want to remake crappy movies? Come on, make something GOOD!
Bootsy Collins and LadyBoy Gaga.
I thought the original Bodyguard movie was very good. I don't think there should be a re-make. Kevin Costner was and still is hot! But if Hollywood insist to do this I would have to say Josh Duhmal and Jordan Sparks with the older man twist.
Beyonce & George Clooney
David Ruffin and Heath Ledger.
Why?? I mean the first one was ok but not good enough to do a remake....
katy perry and russell brand... hilarious
Tila Tequilia and Jerry Falwell.
Gadhafi and Mubarak.
What about a modern remake with a FEMALE heading the security team to protect a male pop star? Or would a movie just not do as well with a powerful female role in a romantic situation? :(
Hmmm. No, I dont think so.
Hmmm . . . maybe Justin Timberlake and Eliza Dushku?
r u serious...this movie wouldn't do well with anyone leading the way
The female could be Michelle Rodriguez. She's a tough chick.
RuPaul and Gene Rayburne.
John Lennon and Mark David Chapman
not funny, along with these other obscure references that folks are tossing out
Elton John and David.
Mickey Rooney and Gary Coleman
Gary Coleman is dead . . . but in Hollywood, I'm not sure that matters.
It's just a matter of time before they try to remake Citizen Kane and The Godfather because "There was no twitter or facebook back then."
Might as well get Kelsey Grammer to play Citizen Kane since he's always thought he was Orson Wells.
I am having nighmares already about Beyonce and Justin Timberlake....no no no ... make it stop!
Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
This is a movie that is totally unworthy of being remade. The original movie wasn't even that good. When, oh when, will Hollywood come up with some original ideas for movies . . . .
How about Kate Gossilen as the star and John can be the bodyguard and the 8 kids are all in the plot to off them!
I've been saying that comment for the past, say decade or so. I'm just not surprised anymore. I'm just waiting for Hollywood to come out with a remake to Gone with the Wind and Casablanca.
Oh please don't give them any ideas...............................lol
I would much prefer a "Bodyguard" sequel with Kevin Costner in the starring role.
But, if Hollywood really feels they have just got to do it in a "modern format", why don't they put a few brain cells together and come up with an orignal storyline? Who should star in a revamp? Try Channing Tatum and Christina Aguillera.
Justin Bieber and Mickey Rourke.
David Bowie and Iggy Pop.
Jennifer Anniston and Grace Jones.
Bobby Brown as the FBI guy who gets caught up in the celebrity of it all and turns into a junkie. True story, and Whitney saves him from his vices as she is also a junkie and they live happily everafter.
Gwyneth Paltrow or Gwen Stefani as the diva
Jason Statham or Daniel Craig as the bodyguard
Kate Hudson as the jealous sister
Javier Bardem as the psycho fan
I don't think "A" list actors would consider being in this movie. I think Eminem and Snoop Dogg could do it, lmao
Ed, why would you admit in a public forum to knowing even that much about this movie?
Donnie and Marie
Taylor Swift and Kanye West.
LOL... that would be great!!
Next thing thing you know they'll be re-making movies put out last year. OOPS... beter not give them ideas!
Someone needs to give them ideas. They obviously can't come up with any on their own.
Agreed, the soundtrack was the best thing about the original movie. "I will Always Love You" is still, to my ears, one of the best vocal performances by anyone, ever...but the movie was meh.
Dolly did it better!
Rhiana and Chris Brown.
Yep he could save her from himself?
mhmm remake of bodyguard doesn`t seem to be too good idea. but i`d go for rihanna and josh duhamel :)
josh duhmel definitely...how about Eva Mendes...
The original wasn't that original in the first place – it was written for Diana Ross and Steve McQueen (hence Costner's haircut), took 20 years to get made, and had been rejigged a load of times before it was finally filmed
Jennifer Lopez and John Cena.
Justin Bieber in Whitney's role and Kim Kardashian as his bodyguard. She can protect him from all the Bieberheads.
Leave well enough along, we don't need a remake of the Bodyguard
LAAAAWWDD BOBBEH I b brown cappin.
Jennifer H and Fantasia have the pipes and some acting experience, as does Mariah (but I doubt Mariah would consider following Whitney). For something very different, Leann Rimes is a fabulous singer who's acted; but it'd be a country-oriented film. Who's gonna go see this already knowing what happens? also, how about a classical singer, a true diva, eh?
All I can say is WHY?
The original was a very mediocre & cliche film at best.
Are there not any good, original scripts floating around Hollywood these days?
This is not to correct way to use the phrase, "Begs the question."
A remake ? Seriously ?
Shania Twain in the role of the singer. I have no idea on who's the guy would be...
The original wasn't that great, why waste money making another that will do half the biz? It's not Whitney and society is no longer enamored with the illicit mystery of jungle fever (as in most people could care less about interracial dating these days, it's not the hot button topic that it was back then).
I don't recall the fact that they were of different races being at all part of the storyline in the movie. The taboo was more the fact that they were supposed to have a business/client relationship.
We don't need a remake. I love Whitney, but since the Bobby Brown days she is trying revamp her carrer. Kevin, well, his movies have not been Blockbusters. Just a thought here: How about a sequel with both. Whitney needs to make another soundtrack like Bodyguard. Kevin had good chemistry with Whitney. They both still look good. It would be nice to see how the relationship of the charcters develped. The key is to hire some damn good writers. And if movie does not work....well, if Whitney can produce another awesome soundtrack, well then, that will be good enough for me.....I'm just saying....
And ax'n that of Whitney would be like ax'n a bear to take a carp on a toilet.
Thank u Alex I agree with you !!! God Bless
Hire some good writers? If Hollywood were willing to pay for good writing, they wouldn't need to do so many sequels and remakes.
the idea of a remake is bad, yours just compounds it
This is a remake not a sequel
In the picture, Whitney has to be once again rescued after she had an OD at the local crackhouse.
Whitney has become so old and broken down that I hear they may allow her rear-end a 2 second cameo.
And in this one, the Bodyguard has major anger issues. Anyone who gets in her way or even looks at her wrong immediately gets ground and pounded into unconsciousness by the crazed bodyguard. She sets out to reform him and they live happily ever after.
If any of the cast need crack just ring up Whitney.
I went to high school with the girl who played Whitney's sister in this movie. When it comes to singing MIchelle could hold her own with anybody – including Whitney – and I would love to see her have a chance to play the lead in this film.
Bet u tried to sniff her used panties too! Sounds like you are smitten...was she the one who got away?
Can this be a snuff film please?
A lot of lame and mean comments here, but at least this one made me laugh!
I would like to see Oprah do Whitneys part and Gayle do Kevins part. Of course in order to move Oprahs big ass around Gayle would need 24/7 access to a forklift.
I'd like to see it made with 2 females . Brokeback Bodyguard.Lohan and ....
Denzel Washington and Angelita Jolie.
But does Angelina sing?
That's an insult...Denzel is way too good for this movie
Er that movie was called The Bone Collector.
How about Ashton Kutcher protecting J-Biebs? ...wait what? This isn't supposed to be a gay movie? I'm confused.
let him get blown up............
@charlie sheen.. that comment was about as lame as the name you stole..
Kevin was already taken...say something not lame then...i am waiting.
Certainly not Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Carrie Underwood, Rhiana, Pink, Katey Perry, Eninem, Usher, Bieber, JayZ, Jennifer Lopez, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, to name a few. Perhaps one or two unknowens, or maybe Idina Menzel & an unknown.
Phyl, Phyl ... are you taking this seriously? do you actually want this to get done? and I hope you're not a dude because Phyl wouldn't be right.
I would like to see Kanye West and Channing Tatum in it with its new name The Booty Guard.
Kevin Costner played a retired Secret Service Agent. Not an SS agent assigned to protect a pop star. I don;t think our country will start to pay our federal agents to protect pop stars. :o)
I'd like to see the same people..Kevin and Whitney...this time he can save her from the crack house she squats at and they can fall in love when he finds her crack pipe...
LMAO. too funny
LOLOL I would totally go see that! :o) hilarious!!!
AND I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU CUZ NOBODY PUTS BABY IN THE CORONER
That typo gives the quote a whole different meaning.....
ITS NOT A TYPO I AM REWRITING DIRTY DANCY WITH A GRITTY REBOOT STAY TOONED
LOL – Dancing with the Stars almost did
another reason why america has fallen from superiority: hollywood cannot even come up with an original movie idea.
we accept mediocrity, we accept the drivel forced to us year in year out – example, CSI, CSI: NY, CSI: Miami, NCIS: NCIS:LA, 3 Law and orders...it all makes me sick.
"Who would you like to see in the leading roles?"
Nobody. This remake is a stupid idea. The movie wasn't even good. The soundtrack carried it limping into memory.
Eat it, Hollywood.
I guess it's true that there is no such thing as original thought.
finally, hwood remakes a crappy movie instead of ripping off a good one.
Some one needs to protect her from the drug dealers
dolly parton originally wrote and recorded i will always love you and did a much better job of it than whitney i think. the only reason i will watch the film is because dolly parton will be in the credits
Not even Dolly Parton thinks that her version is better than Whitney's. Please do yourself a favour and go get your hearing checked before it's too late and you are completely deaf....
Lindsey L & The Situation (might as just as well add to the stupidity of the remake)
Come on, seriously!! This was a great movie with a great sound trak the first time around. I don't see how they could remake it. Now I said the same thing about the Karate Kid and I have to admit that Jackie Chan and Jayden (think thats the right Smith) did a great job and that was a great movie, I just dont see the Bodyguard being able to be remade tho.
Put lindsey lohan in the remake so it will feature a younger crack head instead of an old one
HEY.. I'm just a ... a lonely old ....
Dolly Parton did a great version of HER song and bill t and I agree I like her orginal rendition better than Whitney.
The movie was ok, it was not great and it was not horrible. It is a matter of who is in the movie and of you do not like a certain actor or actress you will not enjoy the movie so give it a rest.
The writer has used the phrase "begs the question" incorrectly. The phrase correctly used means "a logical fallacy."
LOL at the Lindsey references. I truly believe that there aren't any creative writers out there anymore. Let's face it, it appears that almost every subject/movie done in the 60's and 70's has been redone. And if they haven't some resurrected, you can look to seeing them done soon. Unfortunately, they don't always capture the essence from the first one.
The same holds true for music. I don't think there will ever be another era like the 50's to 70's and even the 80's. I guess all drugs the parent did back then, have affected today's creativity.
Ke$ha and Nicholas Cage
Whitney is a pretty woman with a gorgeous voice, but she is a lousy actress. Kevin normally can hold any movie, but not The Bodyguard due to her poor acting and probably some poor directing. Anyone they pick for the lead female role in the remake needs to be able to act as well as sing.
The ROCK should play the body guard (I would like to see his romantic side!!)
And Christina Aquilara should play the Singer!
THAT would be interesting!
How about Jennifer Aniston is the bodyguard and Adam Sandler is the singer. It'll be a romcom trainwreck.
Since Lindsey Lohan has been mentioned, how about Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen for the lead roles???
Zach Galifianakis protecting Justin Bieber would be pretty original. Who doesn't want to see those two kiss? Should gross about $50. Just 50, not 50 million.
I'll do it!
Channing Tatum and Rhianna
How about Russel Brand and Queen Latifah?
Dan Lin needs to hire some more qualified employees, All they can come up with is remaking old crap.
No ? here, you are a racist loser.
I heard dat.

Perhaps you are correct in saying my suggestion only compounds things....then maybe just leave the whole thing alone. THe movie was done, it did well considering, and the soundtrack certainly gave Whitney a lot of comfort financially; but sadly, that comfort is no more. Still, Hollywood is going to do what they always do for profit becuase folks will go see it, and if it bombs at the box office, it will certainly make some profit on the dvd release and rentals via netflix etc. somehow. So in the end Hollywood wins.
Amen Alex. You hit it rght on the head.
