Say What? Who’s Replacing Whitney In ‘The Bodygaurd’

- By Bossip Staff

Her name has echoed the loudest in the flurry of names for stars that could possibly touch a new Bodyguard project.

In the freshest example of how Hollywood adores beating a dead horse for spare change, I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors that Warner Bros. is looking to remake the 1992 hit movie, The Bodyguard. That’s right, that movie with Whitney, Kevin, and “I Will Always Love You.” And while I’m totally against this move because of my love for the classic soundtrack and Whitney’s epic vocals on it (the movie was just okay), in Hollywood, if it ain’t broke, you should still fix it.

So will the rumored starlets, Rih Rih, Beyonce, J-Hud, or Brandy step up to fill the shoes of Whitney Houston in this unnecessary Hollyweird remake?

    bbbbboooooorrrriiiiiinnnnggggggg!!! If I had to choose it would the proven artitst…JHud!!!! applause

  • Dilla

    It’s true that Rhianna is no Whitney, but think about it… No matter who does the soundtrack it could never compare to the original.

  • xedos

    Remember the bodyguard got horrible review
    When it came out

  • Lady A

    I would say Brandy or JHud. Rih or Bey No No! Rih probably couldn’t act to save her life. Bey’s acting skills aren’t the best. But Brandy and JHud both can act and sang. So that would be interesting. I actually think JHud might be the best fit though.

  • Shananigans

    worst idea

  • kwame louder

    brandy all the way

  • GEITRIGHT

    brandy would give it some life, but ri-ri is perfect for the stuck-up role that its meant to be, just like whitney was perfect for it

    • jmagic

      Obviously Beyonce should do it,i couldnt stand to look Brandy’s face for more than 1 min at a time

  • N!gga, 4 Real?

    **crickets**

  • Ebony

    Jennfier Hudson or Brandy!! No Rihanna NO!!! Beyonce!! Christina Milian would be better than Rihanna!!

  • wtf!

    BLACK GIRLS WHEN EVER YOU INSULT RIHANNA, IN SOME WAY YOU’RE INSULTING YOURSELVES!!!

  • Rina

    When I first heard they were making a remake of this I IMMEDIATELY thought of Jennifer Hudson. I can imagine her singing similar to Whitney. I really hope they pick her, if not Brandy is runner up!

  • daboss912

    JHud if anybody should get this job. She is a great actress and probably the best person in this group 2 sing a Whitney Houston song!

  • whatever

    rihanna no way she cant sing like whitney even if she tried j hud has the voice but is not easy on the eyes bey needs this role she can sing shes beautiful and she can hire an acting coach Beyonce all the way

  • thesaneone

    please. theyd consider jhud before rihanna (especially with jhud losin all that weight)

  • Juliemango

    Riu ri is killing it in that pic she looks like a new version of whitney in her good ol days!!!

  • eygotitall

    Why not try someone like Toni Braxton?

  • Unico

    You don’t need someone who looks like Whitney, because the story can be portrayed by anyone.

  • Varus

    Brandy or J. Hud them other two cant act damn it.. shyt Rihnna cant even sing

  • Varus

  • elleone

  • Tha_TruthTeller

    THEY ARE CRAZY, HAVE ANYONE EVER SEEN RI-RI ACT, I MEAN COME ON. BEYONCE OR JENNIFER HUDSON WOULD BE A BETTER CHOICE. THEY GOT THAT FIRE LIKE WHITNET HAD BACK IN THE DAY.
