According to Moviehole, Kevin Costner has some casting ideas for a potential remake of his 1992 hit, The Bodyguard.
"Ideally, it would be great to get someone like Jessica Simpson on board to take the story to the next level", he told OK! Magazine.
With a script that he wrote already completed the chances of this movie getting made look pretty good. Who will play the woman he “bodyguards” is still up in the air. At one point, the late Princess Diana was being talked about for the role.
In the original sequel script, Costner’s character was watching over a woman named Julia (who it was suspected Princess Diana might’ve played) who was working in Hong Kong trying for the release of political prisoners. In the course of protecting Julia, the two characters fell in love.
