Hollywood was said to be working on a modern take of "The Bodyguard" before star Whitney Houston's passing, and it appears the 1992 film will also be turned into a musical.
According to the U.K.'s Guardian, a stage version of the story has been in the works since last year, and producers are now said to be preparing the musical to arrive in London's West End in November.
Tony and Grammy winner Heather Headley will reportedly star as Rachel Marron - the role Houston famously played opposite Kevin Costner in '92.
If you recall, Costner portrayed a former Secret Service agent hired to protect pop star Marron, and the two eventually fall for each other. The stage production isn't expected to stay completely true to the film, but it is expected to include songs from the movie's iconic soundtrack, such as "I Will Always Love You."
As for Costner's role, the producers haven't announced further casting. Would you be interested in seeing "The Bodyguard" on stage?
