'The Bodyguard' to get a more modern remake

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?

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    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.
