Jackman in The Bodyguard remake?
It's amazing to imagine that there's going to be a remake of The Bodyguard, but apparently there is, even if the original sources were the rumour filled sites, there was still quite a trend to suggest that it was actually happening.
However it looks like it's just come true, and more than that the man at the helm of the film is a huge surprise. Titled Personal Security, the film will follow the same lines as The Bodyguard starring Kevin Costner and the once great Whitney Houston.
So who's going to replace the great Kevin Costner in this, really not a remake but sounds exactly the same, film?
Hugh Jackman is the man being rumoured to be involved for the lead of Personal Security, playing the Gotham detective who has been forced into bodyguard duty to protect a famous and very spoiled singer after she receives a kidnap threat.
However the original film just wouldn't work today and they are being forced to make a few changes, one of them is to hit the favourite Hollywood demographic of the thirteen year olds, so what would that change be?
The singer is now a teen heiress, and according to more rumour filled sites, that role is to be played by Miley Cyrus.
That said, neither does the rumour nor the announcement say anything about the heiress being a singer. I suspect that the other factor will be she'll be playing it straight.
I think for me, if the singer and performer factor is gone then it's tough to call it a remake of The Bodyguard. What do you think?
