    Default Warner Bros. to Remake 'The Bodyguard'





    http://movies.yahoo.com/news/usmovie...make-bodyguard

    Warner Bros. is in the midst of remake fever, with the 1992 hit The Bodyguard the latest to get a retread.

    The studio has hired Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer to write the script Studio-based Dan Lin will produce.

    The original starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston and spawned one of the biggest ballads of all time, "I Will Always Love You." It entered on a former Secret Service agent hired to protect a world famous pop singer. While initially uncomfortable in her glitzy world, the man eventually falls for her, compromising his ability to protect her.

    The original was written by Lawrence Kasdan and was the first script written by the scribe, best known for penning Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Big Chill. It was meant as a vehicle for Steve McQueen and Diana Ross.

    In the remake, the story would be updated so that the man would be a former Iraqi war vet trying to protect his client against an Internet world, in which stalkers can track stars on Twitter, Gawker Stalker, Google Maps and countless other sites.

    Warner Bros.' Sarah Schechter is overseeing. It's too early in the process for actors to be announced.

    Friedman and Palmer wrote the action-comedy script Family Getaway, which is set up at the studio and made the 2010 Black List. The duo is repped by UTA and Mosaic.

    The news comes just a month after the studio announced plans to have Clint Eastwood direct Beyonce in the musical remake of A Star Is Born.

    Once you've remade Witch Mountain, I think you're already scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    Why, why, why??? The first one was so stupid. Why remake stupid? Oh yeah, it's Hollywood.

    This is one of those movies that drove me crazy because Whitney Houston's character was always calling Costner's by his first name. Every other word out of her mouth was "Frank"

    IRL, people don't repeat the name of the person they are talking to all the time.
    It's a peeve of mine. The last third of Titanic consisted of "oh Jack" "oh Rose"
