The Bodyguard – 6/7/19

In a recent interview, Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson spoke about which movie they would like to remake, and it was 1992’s The Bodygaurd.  Back in 2011, Warner Bros. announced it was developing a “Bodyguard” remake, and they wanted Rihanna for the lead, but she turned the project down, saying she wanted to play anything but a singer because her whole life was playing Rihanna; being a singer wouldn’t be a stretch for her.  By the way, Kevin Costner will be on Kimmel tonight.
