It was proudly announced that the company of 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 story of 'The Bodyguard' is 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.
In the remake, the story would be updated so that the man would be a former Iraqi war vet. Sarah Schecter is overseeing.
