whitney The Bodyguard , a story about a pop diva being stalked who falls in love with her bodyguard, was originally played by the legendary Whitney Houston .  The 1992 flick delivered one of the greatest soundtracks of all time and was a massive success, garnering $410 million worldwide and winning two Oscars.  So, of course Hollywood wants to recapture the cash.  Rumor of The Bodyguard remake has been buzzing in Hollywood for the past year -- Rihanna 's name was tossed around. 

UK paper, The Independent , is reporting The Bodyguard is set to be remade with Miley Cyrus as Whitney's character and Hugh Jackman (umm, okay... ) as the bodyguard, "Miley Cyrus, face of box-office phenomenon Hannah Montana The Movie, is to star in a remake of the overblown Whitney Houston vehicle The Bodyguard. "

Now, I'm not one to hate on someone's grind -- but what kind of tomfoolery is this?  Miley as Whitney?  That's like casting Britney Spears as Kizzy in a remake of Roots !  Cyrus is clearly a box office draw, but couldn't they have grabbed someone else for the flick?  I could deal with Jennifer Hudson or even Christina Aguilera .  How about not touching the movie at all?  It's not even 20 years old!  Hollywood is running out of story lines quickly -- where is an online petition when you need one?

Would you like to see Miley Cyrus in a remake of The Bodyguard?
