A new version of The Bodyguard, which starred Whitney Houston in 1992, will be coming to the big screen and one person is not supportive - Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown.
A TMZ reporter asked Bobby Brown if he thought a remake of the classic film was a bad idea and he responded with, “Yeah.”
According to Variety, Tony nominee Matthew López has been hired to write a “reimagining” of the movie at Warner Bros.
Lawrence Kasdan of Kasdan Pictures, who was the writer-producer of the original, will produce. A cast has not been set but Variety reports, “Combos from Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson to Channing Tatum and Cardi B have been floated.”
In the original, Whitney Houston was a high-strung singing diva and Kevin Costner played the role of her bodyguard.
