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.

    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.

    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 Says:

    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.

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

    Laura Says:

    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 Says:

    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.
