"Frank Farmer to see Miss Marron" ... again.

Which '90s film - actually written in the '70s as a vehicle for Steve McQueen and Miss Diana Ross - is receiving a makeover? Oh yes, Chiclets.... you guessed it. Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston's The Bodyguard is getting a remake.

IndieWIRE reports that writers Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer have been tapped to reboot the love story of the bodyguard and the D-d-d-d-d-DIVA. It will be updated, of course, to reflect the current brand of celebrity fandom, technology and social media. It will also include Iraq combat experience for Mr. Bodyguard.

Hmmm.... wonder who's gonna be tapped to play Miss Rachel Marron since Beyonce is already sucked into A Star is Born? Yours Truly thinks it oughta be J.Hud for sure! It's being said that Rihanna is in the front running for the role but, Deadline.com reports that the goal is to take a young female singer with global appeal and give her the platform that The Bodyguard did Houston. Mmmm, yea ... I'm not thinking that Rihanna and "global appeal" really go together.

I still think it should be J.Hud.
