The Bodyguard has been given the go-ahead to be remade, Deadline.com has reported.
Deadline.com have reported that Kevin Costner’s character Frank Farmer will now be an ex Iraq War Veteran who,after leaving the army,is assigned to look out for a young female global star.
Rihanna has been tipped to play the role of Rachel Marron on the Warner Bro’s shortlist. The new actress must be well-known globally just like Whitney Houston was in this role. Other suggested to get the part are Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson,Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus.
Rihanna seems like the most likely choice. She’s at the top of her game right now, she’s a global phenomenon and the Role of Rachel Marron calls for an actress that’s feisty and has an edge. Rihanna would be perfect.
The Bodyguard is a film about a former Secret Service agent,Frank Farmer,who takes a job body guarding a famous pop star. When Rachel Marron,the famous singer, starts receiving death threats,security is upped and since Rachel can’t risk going out so much, she and Frank develop a close relationship.
The film is most famous for Whitney Houston’s cover of Dolly Parton’s ‘I Will Always Love You.’
Xerxes is the name of the prequel to the 2006 Spartan epic 300. It focuses on Xerxes life previous to being defeated. It will show everything up until the Spartans set out to kill the King of Persia.
It’s based on Frank Miller’s book series. At the moment it’s in its early stages. Guy Ritchie was suspected to direct the prequel but Warner Bro’s say that it’s just rumours. Zac Snyder directed 300 but he’s currently working on the new Superman film so it’s unlikely that he will have time to take on Xerxes.
