Rihanna Won't Star In "The Bodyguard" Remake

We told you earlier that there was a possibility that Rihanna would star in a remake of The Bodyguard, but now when asked if she would star in the project she says "Absolutely not."  Deets inside...

 

In a new interview with OK! magazine, Rihanna denies that she will star in a remake of The Bodyguard.

"I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else," she said. "I want to play a character. My whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer won't be a stretch for me. I like challenges and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else's shoes, that's the excitement."

I guess the search continues for a star vehicle to turn Rihanna into a screen goddess.

The Randomness:

1.  Tiki Barber makes plans to return to the NFL.  Story.

2.  LeBron James being sued by a nightclub in Atlanta.  Story

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

Now that i think about it i

Now that i think about it i see Alicia keys and james franco together. Though i would rather the girl be maro brown skinned like Whitney. It would be nice if the girl were asian. The bodyguard could be black and the girl white. To that i would say scarlett johanssoan and idris elba. All i know is whom ever they pick both of the actors have to, they must elude sexiness and gaga is not hitting the spot. Some people think they should reverse roles with a female bodyguard and male singer. I call flop no one wants to see a women carrying a man out of a club cowering and scard. Imagine Whitney carrying Costner out not a pretty sight at all. Keep the races mixed its better that way. If your going to have a black women make her brown skinned if she's light she might as well be white. Add more love scenes and at the end do something good. In the original movie the ending was like what?!!! Why did he leave? Why did she get on that plane and where was she going? I understand why it was bad for him to be with her you know with his guard down around her and all but why not make it a long distance relationship? Make the scenes oooze sex. It should borderline soft core porn. I was slightly disappointed in the fact that they did't show them having sex. Not everything of course but bodies rubbing together or something.I did like the relationship between the little kid and the bodyguard that was cool but the kid hase to be super cute. They should really ask Costner what he thinks is best.

Do people agree with me that

Do people agree with me that Kevin costner was sexy in that movie? I loved that he was a very rough and tough character. Heres an awesome idea ask Costner who he thinks should be cast in the roles. I think his opinion counts. What ever you do please no Beyonce ever. Her acting is horrid!!!

Praise the Lord we're all

Praise the Lord we're all allowed to have our own opinions, as for a remake I hope it doesn't see the light of day (and YES, many of us do consider it to be a classic, even if others didn't like it, to each his/her own), and thanks for your wonderful comments on Whitney Kevin Costner. Terrific interviews with a very humble and generous man.

I honestly think that Rihanna

I honestly think that Rihanna would not have done the role any justice. Personally, I don't know how they do the remakes but I'm almost sure whoever is playing Rachel Marron won't be singing the same exact songs. Now, Rihanna- this role isn't right for her anyways. You do have to be a mega star or at least could pull it off, "act" like you are one in this film. Rihanna can't. Now if they are going for the whole singer thing, my personal oppinion is Monica. I think she'll do outstanding in this role. Maybe a Chrisette Michele...or if they're just going to go with actresses, I say Gabrielle Union, Taraji P.Henson. They're brilliant, and perfect for it!

Smart move. Rihanna going up

Smart move. Rihanna going up against Whitney Houston, even 15+ years ago will murder her career. Whitney rocked that role and she could sing. Miss RiRi can do neither.

I TOTALLY agree with you/ She

I TOTALLY agree with you/ She sounds stupid even saying that playing a singer isn't a challenge to her. That entire movie would be a challenge to her, because she could NEVER sing any song in that movie the way Whitney Houston did. She can't act, so I'm glad she's not doing the movie, because she would have BUTCHERED it! She did us a favor, but made it seem like she "didn't want to do it". Yeah right!

I can't believe that some

I can't believe that some people are claiming the bodygaurd was a classic film. To this day i find whitney's acting in it hard to watch.....No way in hell could rihanna be any worse. And do people honestly believe that rihanna would have sung the same songs whitney sang? The hate on black blogs for rihanna is sad and strange......How can you dislike/hate someone you don't know?

There are different kinds of

There are different kinds of 'Classics' Anon, and in this case this particular movie is considered to be just that. Whitney did the best she could with what she had, especially with that being her first acting gig. Once again, to each his/her own opinion. NO remake would be perfectly fine with me.

how can you dislike/hate someone you don't know???? thats a dumb question....its the same you can like someone you don't know...lol. the same way people spend millions of dollars promoting and supoorting the lifestyles of idiots like waka flocka, lil wayne and other billionaire coons....watching (thereby supporting) shows life 2 and a half men, knowing charlie sheen is off his fucking rocker.....so how is it people don't like rihanna when they dont know her??? people base these opinions on public behavior, her ability to speak in public, oh yeah...and those butt nekkid pics she took recently and had "leaked"....

ok ppl lets be real, she turned it down because she knows she's a terrible singer, point blank....how could they even consider this broad in a singing movie, singing movies are for "singers"...she would suck big time, she cannot sing live so what the hell.....they need to choose a "singer" for that movie....The Audacity Of These People! *shrugs*

In regard to

In regard to Rihanna...whatever. Is Tiki Barber broke and now planning to make a comeback to the NFL after 4 years to pay bills?? Mmm hmmm...this is what happens when you do dirt. Left the pregnant wife for the young jump off, lost your TV job and now all your flossing with your trophy plus alimony and child support is kicking your ass.

I think its good she turned

I think its good she turned it down or would not want to do it if asked, because remakes are always hard to impress, people just compare it with the original and usually they never measure up so its a smart move to me, cause people weren't going to do nothin but trash it cause they trashin already before its even made

Playing the part of a singer

Playing the part of a singer is a nice way to ease into it. And she might get an Oscar! Look what happened to Jennifer Hudson. Rihanna should get her nose out of the air on this one.

"I guess the search continues

"I guess the search continues for a star vehicle to turn Rihanna into a screen goddess." Well, Beyonce has had many leading roles and she still hasn't accomplished that. So it's not like RIhanna is in that particular boat by herself, right?
Anonymous's picture

Yeah, but you forget Beyonce

Yeah, but you forget Beyonce ( terrible ass name) still brings "Beyonce" into every character she plays instead of focusing on THE CHARACTER! She still can't act, aside from producers wanting to make money hence the reason why she gets lead roles... yes she is not the only one.

I'm glad she didn't choose to

I'm glad she didn't choose to play that role cause those are big shoes to fell if she fucked up that movie her career would be over. Look at Mariah with Glitter when that shit came out everything when down hill but it took time for her to bounce back. I'll be afraid to do that movie myself and I'm not even a actor it's just some movies should be left alone no remakes cause that sometimes put these classic movies to shame.

I'm glad she turned it down & for the rite reasons. Maybe they will actually hire a ACTRESS 4 the part & not another singer. We complain about not being recognized @ the award shows lik the oscars BUT most of the acting roles 4 blks R being given to the singers NOT because they can act but to make ppl wanna show simply because their in the movie. Movie making is no longer an art form its jus strictly making a profit no matter how big or small it may be. There are a few talented artist at acting but we need to really stop over using singers in movies.

Only Rihanna's stans wanted

Only Rihanna's stans wanted to see her do a Bodyguard remake, now the rest of the world doesn't. Part of what made the movie great was Whitney Houston's Singing ability. And she has to be a mega star, Rihanna simply ain't it.... I know WHitney don't like beyonce too well, But she fits the role more than Jennifer Hudson. I would even go a different route and choose a White singer like Britney Spears or Lady Gaga before a Rihanna. Remember we need Mega stars someone that can sell albums, Whitney first album sold 13 million in the US. Rihanna isn't a big american star, she only sold 5 million total career albums in the US. Lady gaga already outsold her with 1 album. No people, we need someone that was on the same mega star level as WHitney in that point of her career. NO rihanna, sorry. Britney spears, lady Gaga, or Beyonce take your pick

I would have agreed wth you

I would have agreed wth you expect none of those you mentionned can act to save their lives! lol! We all saw them in movies and it was hell especially Beyonce! Yuck. Now, Jennifer Hudson CAN act she is too smart to refuse a role that will never allow her to show other abilities outside of her vocal range.
