Whitney Houston skyrocketed to mainstream fame after having a starring role on “The Bodyguard” and there is talk of a remake which Bobby Brown is not feeling.
According to Variety, the remake will be inspired by the 1992 original. The first film starred Houston alongside Kevin Costner and has one of the best-selling film soundtracks of all time. The new film will be led by Matthew López, the Tony-nominated playwright of The Inheritance.
Lawrence Kasdan of Kasdan Pictures, Dan Lin, and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback will produce the new film. Rideback’s Nick Reynolds will executive produce. Kasdan was also the writer and producer for the original film.
TMZ cameras caught up with the ex husband of Whitney, Bobby Brown, who gave a simple answer to his thoughts on the remake. At the airport he was asked if the remake was a bad idea. He simply stated “yeah.”
