Whitney Houston Fans Upset Over ‘The Bodyguard’ Remake



According to Variety, iconic blockbuster film “The Bodyguard,” is slated for a remake … but Whitney Houston fans aren’t having it.

Houston starred in the 1992 romantic drama opposite Kevin Costner. The film — about a former secret service agent who falls in love with a diva singer he’s been hired to protect from a stalker — racked up over $400 million at the worldwide box office.

Following news that Tony-nominated playwright Matthew López is working on a new version, fans took to Twitter to express their frustration.

“They’re remaking the bodyguard? why does everything need a remake?” Said one fan, with a Houston meme.

While another said, “Hollywood must be running out of ideas? Trying to remake The Bodyguard really? No one can sing those iconic songs like the legendary Whitney Houston. It is a reason why she’s known as the ‘The Voice’

The Bodyguard soundtrack is one of the greatest soundtracks of all time — thanks to Houston mega hits “Run to You”, “I Have Nothing,” and “I Will Always Love You”.

Lawrence Kasdan the writer-producer of the original film is involved in the new project. Lopez who penned “The Inheritance,” has been hired to write a reimagining of the film at Warner Bros.

No cast has been set but names like Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson to Channing Tatum and Cardi B have been floated around.

Still it sounds like Houston, we have a problem!
