Rihanna To Remake 'The Bodyguard'

Rihanna To Remake 'The Bodyguard'

Rihanna was in NYC over the weekend to discuss various film projects, according to the NYDN‘s Gatecrasher.

The first is the remake of 1992’s The Bodyguard. The 21-year-old is rumored to take Whitney Houston‘s role while GI Joe hunk Channing Tatum would replace Kevin Costner.

“Before the situation with Chris [Brown], Ri was getting a lot of scripts. She’s been wanting to do movies for a while now,” our insider reveals.

Rihanna is also said to be considering the Charlie’s Angels sequel, as well as possibly starring alongside Justin Timberlake, with whom she released her hit single “Rehab.

Both projects don’t sound very plausible. Do you think Rihanna should star in either movie?

UPDATE: Rihanna‘s rep denies these movie reports.

    Um Why??? Not every singer is meant to be an actor and not every actor is meant to be a singer.

    Besides what is the point of remaking “The Bodyguard” which was a bad movie. I tell you lazy HW folks can’t come up with new ideas, just keep on rehasing bad movies that should have never been made and great classics that should be left alone.

  • CB should be in jail

    why not. i think she can be a great actress. after seeing her in disturbia, shut up and drive and rehab videos, i think she has what it takes and more. great to hear that she’s back at her game bigger and better than ever. welcome back riri.

    why not zac efron? i guess he’s not manly enough. lmbao

  • Cara

    She may be offered and accept these film roles but her future is literally doomed until she removes the vicious woman beater from her personal life as the public is not going to forget what happened to her at the hands of an animal that she may have chosen to sleep with, yet, again?

  • Anon

    I guess she can make movies if she wants to. Sheesh. What is “not very plausible” about it? The only thing good about The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston, was that Whitney cannot act and the music was awesome. That movie had great music. but that’s all it had. As for working with JT, or doing other stuff, I think it would be a fine idea. I hope she does all kinds of wonderful stuff including dumping that rotten SOB Chris Brown who is merde! BTW. Chris Brown is doing movies and no one is saying it’s “not very plausible.” Even 50 Cents made a rotten movie with Robert De Niro, so why shouldn’t she try it.

  • Lillianne

    She should do whatever she wants to do. I won’t see a movie just because she’s in it.

    It kind of makes me queasy to know she got beat up all that bad and doesn’t have enough self esteem to get out of the situation.

  • jrfan

    Why the heck would they remake the bodyguard?

    Why the heck would they remake the bodyguard?

  • zula

    A remake of a 1992 movie that was not so good to begin with? Not a good idea! She should not make people compare her to Whitney Houston for about 100 reasons.

  • J.

    i can’t stand the idea of her being an actress. i mean isnt it bad enough that she sings although she aint got no talent at all. i mean she is a good performer but such a bad singer. why does she have to take the roles from other actresses who are much more talented? i hate it.

  • ShAM

    SHUT UP F*CKING HATERS!!!

    SHE IS THE BEST!

    AND SHE WILL DO IT GREAT! ALL PEOPLE CAN BE ACTOR!

    Whitney Houston(Who is a singer) HAD WORST PROBLEMS AND SHE DID IT GREAT!

    Did you see BEYONCE, JUSTIN etc.. (SINGERS&ACTORS)

  • tawi-tawi

    Why are they remaking movies that are not even that old yet? what’s up with that?

  • Lady caca

    How ’bout “The Ike and Tina Turner story? This bitch is overrated. She cant sing. Ladies wrestling perhaps???

  • billy jean

    The irony on this one is rich. Forgot remaking The Bodyguard. Rihanna needs to get herself a better bodyguard that doesn’t allow her to end up beaten and left on the side of the road!

  • Dest

  • rascal

    A domestic abuse victim starring in the Bodyguard? Next they’ll have Chris Brown playing the villain in the film. Those Hollywood weirdos will capitalize off anyone’s misfortune.

  • http://Goawaybeyonce LOVE HER

    If you watch Bring it On 2 you can see she can act. Love you RiRi. xD

  • deetz

    No, it’s bad timing. Rihanna should be in couseling and getting her legal/personal affairs sorted out, not accepting movie offers.

  • FED UP WITH rihanna THE HO

    She wants to be the next Jennifer Hudson.. doing a musical playing a
    singer.. who should have a older bodyguard.. So now she wants to
    be the next Whitney Houston?? Well isn’t her co star worried that
    Chris Brown might get jealous..How about Halle and her ex husband
    the baseball star..!

    Why should there be sympathy for a domestic abuse .victim…Jlo would
    be better or Beyonce someone that can act..!!

  • meme

    Rihanna can’t sing. They need to put someone in the movie who has a great voice like Whitney Houston. The soundtrack was the best thing about the original Bodyguard. Rihanna will fuck that up with her weak vocals.

  • ‘Mandise

    hell NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I hate this girl…her playing whitney? GOSH NAH!!!!! such a classic would be RUINED! and besides, can’t they be original ? what is it with all those remakes? mcgyver? bodyguard? friday 13th?texas chainsaw massacre? lol everything is being remade, nothing new! argh, I’m tired of old things! why don’t they hire me? I’m sure I’d invent some good things! I’m pretty original, skilled and have a huge imagination XD

  • mama

    she’ll end up like Whitney Houston for sure….

  • cain

    put her into comparison to whitney is such a stupid idea…

  • lies

    Another FALSE rumor i’m sure. There is absolutely no need to remake that movie this early. Ridiculous.

  • Laura

    Please no! Not a remake of The Bodyguard, it was perfect the way it was, not every movie has to be made again and again and again…
    Hopefully more will disagree…

  • slambang

    Why remake a movie that wasn’t even that good to begin with?

    Plus, I don’t remember any scene where Kevin Costner beats Whitney Houston senseless and chokes her until she passes out.

    Sorry, but I have no sympathy for this girl since she went back to that POS abuser.

  • MORE LIES FOR RIHANNA

    NO HER PUBLICIST HAS ALREADY SAID ON ACCESS THAT SHE IS NOT LOOKING FOR A MOVIE RIGHT NOW.. SO GET OVER IT..!

    MORE LIES TOMORROW WHAT NOW ? DUET ,MOVIE DEAL CHRIS
    IS 4,000 MILES AWAY FROM HER SHE IS HER OLD BITCHY SELF.

  • manolita

    well no, she’s not an actress. And does movies don’t need a remake.

  • manolita

    *those movies * (not “does”)

  • Countess von zinzendorf

    Good for her. I hope she can act. We will see.

  • thats_right

    How can she face the public? I so lost my respect towards her, she wants to be in a movies? please you went back to that abuser what kind of a role model are you for us for the women, so you are saying oh its ok if your man beats you up just take him back, shame on you Rihanna, and shame on those producers if they are are even considering to hire you as a so called “actress”.

  • Shakira

    Rhianna and Timberlake. That video was HOT!

  • a total fan

  • Leah

    Stick 2 The Singin Love. I Personally Think She Would Be A Terrible Actress. But It Would Be Amusing 2 See Her Trying To Act Tho =P

  • kamila

    Please, save “The bodyguard” from Rihanna….

  • blah

    I feel sorry for her and all for what happned to her, but this bitch needs to take that fur off. HOw many animals had to die so this bitch can have that coat or what ever the hell that is.

  • blah
