Whitney Houston’s ex-husband Bobby Brown takes a very dim view of the idea of a remake of Bodyguard. Warner is working on a remake of the 1992 film with the diva and Kevin Costner. A new film that would be written by Matthew Lopez, a screenwriter and playwright several times awarded at the Tony Awards for his plays, while the names of Cardi B and Channing Tatum or even Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson were mentioned for the cast as reveals it Variety.
But despite these prestigious names, Bobby Brown finds the idea frankly bad as he made it known to the microphone of TMZ which was there to welcome him at the Los Angeles airport a few days ago. And on this point, Bobby Brown’s opinion agrees with that of most fans of the original film who already fear the worst.
A horrible idea
“It’s such a horrible idea. There is no need for a remake for this legendary film that is Bodyguard. Hollywood now refuses to invest in new talent to create new stories out of sheer laziness, ”an Internet user protested in a tweet relayed by the publication.
Bodyguard was a huge box office success, as was the cover of Dolly Parton’s classic, I Will Always Love You, which, you know, remains the best-selling soundtrack of all time.
And of course, we can understand that Warner is tempted, once is not customary, to play it safe, especially after the immense success of A Star is Born which was only ever the fourth remake of the original 1937 film.
