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.

    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.

    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”?
