Is This Needed?! Hollywood Gears Up To Remake Whitney Houston's 'The Bodyguard'

​ ​ ​ ​

Hollywood's obsession with remakes is now moving to a 90s classic that featured late legendary singer Whitney Houston. Yep, a remake of "The Bodyguard" is in the works and all we keep thinking is...WHY IS THIS NEEDED?! More inside....

It's been a season of remakes and reboots! And if we're honest, we're just TIREDT. That doesn't matter though because Hollywood is going to keep on Hollywood'n and they're going to keep churning out these remakes until they can't anymore.

The iconic 1992 classic film, The Bodyguard, which starred the late Whitney Houston and Hollywood vet Kevin Costner, is getting the remake treatment, according to Variety. And we can't say we're excited about it. Some things should be left alone. This movie is one of them.

According to Varitey, Matthew López, the Tony-nominated playwright of “The Inheritance,” has been hired to write the new version of the film for Warner Bros.

Variety reports:

Lawrence Kasdan of Kasdan Pictures, and Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback are producing the new film. Rideback’s Nick Reynolds will executive produce. Kasdan was the writer-producer of the original. Lin has been attached to the property since 2011, which has seen delirious speculation over the potential lead cast for years. Combos from Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson to Channing Tatum and Cardi B have been floated. No cast has been set for López’s script at this stage.

In 2011, there were reports that Rihanna would be cast as the lead for Warner Bros. Bodyguard remake. No updates on if this is still true in 2021.

It seems Whitney Houston fans are NOT here a Bodyguard remake:

Yeah, a Bodyguard remake isn't needed. Let that classic just be a classic and enjoy it for it was. It was a huge hit when it debuted almost 30 years ago. And it still is. Hey Hollywood: LEAVE IT ALONE.
