Warner Bros. is in the process of remaking the 1992 hit The Bodyguard into a new, modern-day feature. Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer will write the screenplay.

The new version of The Bodyguard will be revamped for today's digital age, with an Iraq War veteran taking on the bodyguard job, discovering that it is even more difficult to protect celebrities in the 21st Century. There is speculation that Rhianna may take over the role originated by Whitney Houston.

Dan Lin will produce the remake along with co-producer Mark Bauch. The producers are seeking a young singer with a worldwide following for the lead role. No production schedule was released for The Bodyguard at this time. »
