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.

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

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
