Remake For The Bodyguard In The Works

Posted on Thu Feb 24, 2011 06:40 AM PDT

bodyguardremakeugh.jpgThe Bodyguard is the latest film getting the remake treatment, and Warner Bros. has hired Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer to re-write the 1992 classic.

The original starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, and Deadline reports that the reboot will reflect “the world of Twitter, Google Maps and [gossip blogs which have] made access to celebrities easier than ever.” Costner played a former Secret Service agent hired to protect a pop diva with a stalker, and this version will have a former Iraqi war vet playing the part.

It was previously reported that Rihanna and Channing Tatum would play the main characters, but the R&B starlet's rep shot down those reports last year. So here's our question: Who do YOU think should play Whitney in Kevin in this updated version?

Would it kill anyone in Hollywood to write an original screenplay these days? Ugh.
