Warner Bros. To Remake The Bodyguard

The Bodyguard (1992)
Available on DVD

Available on Amazon Instant

Another week, another announced remake.

This time we're reading (via Deadline|New York) that the 1992 film The Bodyguard, starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston, is being remade by Warner Bros. Though most people probably remember the film for its music, notably Whitney Houston's cover of Dolly Parton's ballad "I Will Always Love You", we appreciated the film for its well-crafted suspense-driven plot.

Reportedly, the plotline involves a (male) Iraqi war veteran assigned to protect a (female) singer in an age of high technology.

But if you're going to remake it, why not mix it up a bit. When the 1954 film A Star Is Born with Judy Garland and James Mason was remade in 1976 with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, the male/female roles were reversed. Why not try the same here? It might even make this announced remake worthwhile.
