When asked if making a remake was a bad idea, he simply said: “Yeah.”

Matthew López, the Tony-nominated playwright of The Inheritance, has been hired to write the reimagining at Warner Bros., Variety reported earlier in the week, which led to criticism and disapproval on social media.

There’s no word yet on the possible cast.

The new movie will be “inspired” by the film starring Whitney and Kevin Costner, which grossed more than $400 million at the box office and has what is considered the bestselling movie soundtrack of all time.

At the same time, it’s been confirmed that a Whitney Houston hologram residency is coming.
