One of the producers of the remake of “Bodyguard” will be Lawrence Kasdan, the film’s original writer and producer. The script for the remake of the film was written by nominated playwright Tony Matthew Lopez (“Newsroom”). It is not known who will star. The design of this remake has been talked about in Hollywood since at least 2011, and during this time there has been speculation about several potential lead actors. The discourse was about, among others, duo Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Channing Tatum and Cardi B, considered by many to be some of the most controversial figures in the American music scene. Interestingly, the script of the film was created in the 70s of the last century. Written with Steve McQueen and Diana Ross in mind.
The protagonist of “Bodyguard” is a famous bodyguard and former CIA agent, Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner). Among his following orders is to protect the popular singer and actress Rachel Marron (Whitney Houston). The artist was harassed by a serious fan for some time. Although Rachel and her new bodyguard are initially different, a feeling soon arises between them.
The film was directed by Mick Jackson, and has grossed more than $400 million in cinemas around the world. This made it the second highest-grossing film of 1992. The film’s soundtrack has sold over 45 million copies. These include hits like “I’ll always love you,” “I’m every woman,” or “I have nothing.” Bodyguard was also nominated for Golden Raspberries in seven categories, including Worst Film, Actor, and Actress.
Matthew Lopez’s biggest hit so far is The Inheritance which was shown in 2018 at the Young Vic Theater in London. There, it has been described as the most important American art of the century. Currently, Lopez is working on, among other things, the “Leading Men” script about Tennessee Williams and his longtime partner Frank Merlo.
