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.

i like channing tatum, they can keep him.. rihanna.. not so much.

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

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?

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.

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.

Why the heck would they remake the bodyguard?

Why the heck would they remake the bodyguard?

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.

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.

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)

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

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

billy jean @ 03/16/2009 at 10:32 am

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!

SHUT * UP * HATERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SHUT UP
.
.
.
SHE CAN SING = SHE IS A SINGER !!! IDIOTS
.
AND SHE CAN ACT !!!
.
.
.
Channing Tatum & RI = HOTTT COUPLE !!!
SHE IS THE 4 ANGEL !!! SHE IS THE BEST
.
.
RIHANNA WILL DO A LOT OF MOVIES VERY SOON!

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.

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

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 @ 03/16/2009 at 10:44 am

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..!!

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 **** that up with her weak vocals.

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

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

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

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

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…

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 @ 03/16/2009 at 11:37 am

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.

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

*those movies * (not “does”)

Countess von zinzendorf @ 03/16/2009 at 11:53 am

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

thats_right @ 03/16/2009 at 12:05 pm

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”.

Rhianna and Timberlake. That video was HOT!

Well, she certainly has the Whitney-bobby Brown thing down, so why not?

from the movie ‘Carrie’:

“THEY’RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU!”
“THEY’RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU!”
“THEY’RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU!”

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

Please, save “The bodyguard” from Rihanna….

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

I just read the comment by Fed up wiht Rihanna the Ho—
I could not agree with you more. Well said

I’ve lost respect for her after she went back to the man that beat her.

enoughalready @ 03/16/2009 at 2:46 pm

She cant master singing yet so why would someone want to put her in their movie?

Regardless of what has happen, she still cant sing!

Take a poll and ask if she can sing, the majority will say the same, HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having songs that have a nice beat dont make you a singer…

Good grief, why the heck would they want to remake ‘The Bodyguard’? Whitney has such a strong voice and is a pleasure to listen to. Rihanna isn’t.

babybabybaby @ 03/16/2009 at 3:43 pm

For the love of gawd NO!

good, cuz im pretty sure she’s sucked balls at acting like many ppl do
cant stand her =p

amazinggg @ 03/16/2009 at 5:18 pm

rihanna? actress? i wouldn’t see either movie BECAUSE she would be the star…especially not in the bodyguard..

@ 35. You loser! Beyonce is GREAT in her vids, can she act? Honestly, tell me.

I’d cry tears if she ever destroyed “the Bodyguard”. Whitney has more talent in her cracked up finger tips than this girl will ever have!!! HELL NO!!!

P.S OMG!!!! Look at that tenhead! MERCYYYYYYYYYYYY.
I knew it was big, but damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

msblknasty1 @ 03/16/2009 at 6:05 pm

if she goes back with breezy hell no dont give her dumb azz ****…. but if she leaves ike jr. then give her the world lolol

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
She can never ever never ever sing like Whitney.

msblknasty1 @ 03/16/2009 at 6:10 pm

above … ummm whitney dont sing like whitney so what is your point .. id rather here rhi rhi.. then to her crack voice ….ewww whitney

I’ll never watch it!

she is beautiful in jeans, but I hope it is not using Pepe animal, peta it, if the animal skin, it should put the skin of Chris because it is an aggressive animal

TWPUMPKIN @ 03/16/2009 at 8:03 pm

She is a loser! What kind of image is she sending out to young girls? “Sure it’s OK to knock around your girlfriend”. What a loser! She deserves Chris “Beat Em” Brown.

I HOPE THIS MOVIE FLOPS! SHE IS NOT A GOOD ROLE MODEL TO WOMEN OR GIRLS OUT THERE. I DON’T LIKE HER ANYMORE

BECAUSE I CARE @ 03/16/2009 at 10:06 pm

Lots of good actresses have turbulent personal lives, some of it is what makes them complicated and effective. DON”T JUDGE!

She would be EXCELLENT in Charlie’s Angels! Gorgeous, strong and capable.

She’ll work it out, if she hits it she’ll be a huge star. Whitney was a great singer but a terrible actress. The Preacher’s Wife is another movie with an amazing soundtrack that fails miserably.

Let her make the remake, who cares? If you love it then WOW!

rockinrobyn @ 03/16/2009 at 10:14 pm

She better learn how to speak first & like LL Cool J when he first started n many others, take SPEECH CLASSES. I’m truly surprise she didnt care enough about her self to take the initiative yet. She’s also fallen back on her dance moves n voice being so busy spending $ n ignoring her fam bam n siblings back home. I love to hear different accents, except my own, and being an island girl from the country in Hawaii myself, haoles always try to imitate our accent. They think it’s cute, lol. Basically it’s broken-english. I heard Rihanna in an interview on a YouTube video and (not 2 b rude) but she sounds awful, also like she was reluctant to talk out of embarassment. I heard tourist from Barbados before but they didnt sound like her. Someone said she speaks w/ a ghetto Barbados accent not of someone educated from Barbados, whatever that sounds like. Be nice 2 c her in films tho.

riri as an actress.. nope.. she cant even sing well

Please don’t put yourself to shame. Dont push it just because your a great singer. Id rather you sing with JT then star alongside him. Not good mate.

It should be Beyonce and Channing Tatum!!!!! Rihanna can’t sing!!!!

Yup, anyone who wears fur should get the **** beat out of them.

She has no business trying broadway. I’ll admit, listening to her music isn’t the same anymore. How can you root for someone who chooses to reconcile with a woman-beater? She’s a fool and an idiot.

Noooo! she shouldn’t do this! Not only because there is hardly any room for improvement in the bodyguard, and rihanna is not a better singer/actress than whitney!!

Even though it would be horribly cheesy, I would LOVE to see a Bodyguard remake with Rihanna and Channing Tatum!

i think she’ll be remaking Whitney’s crack addiction and abusive marriage to Bobby Brown first. Chris Brown/Bobby Brown, same thing. let’s hope Ri gets it together first.

NO THE ***** CAN’T SING. AN INSULT TO WHITNEY SHAME

Philip Wester @ 03/18/2009 at 2:37 am

So is this why she’s staying with Chris Brown? Whitney had Bobby (ironically also a Brown), Rihanna needs her Chris Brown to make her life miserably while shooting “The Bodyguard”?

Her voice isn’t strong enough!!!! I heard her sing Mariah Carey’s Hero, and it was awful!

i think that she would be a great actress, she could do better than chris brown

She doesn’t really seem “Angel” material.

Go for da bodyguard chicky CHANNING TATUM!!! hw da hell can u pass dat up

ohh no,rihanna souldnt do musicals ,maybe charlies angles if she was the assasin,dont you think? i mean she got that crazy-but-in-control look. and if you dont like her singing then support her in acting cause she might just do a will smith and become a real actress lol
