The Bodyguard, a 1992 movie that launched the acting career of the late Whitney Houston and featured her most famous hit, is getting a reboot.

Hollywood movie studio Warner Bros said on Wednesday that a reimagining of the romantic thriller is in development with a script penned by American playwright Matthew Lopez.

Lopez is the playwright behind the award-winning The Inheritance, a two-part drama about gay men in New York a generation after the 1980s Aids epidemic, that opened on Broadway in 2019.

No details of casting, plot or a potential release date were given but Warner Bros said that Lawrence Kasdan, the writer and producer of the 1992 film, will co-produce the new version.

Houston made her movie debut in The Bodyguard, playing a singer who is protected from an unknown stalker by a former secret service agent played by Kevin Costner.

Despite being panned by critics at the time, it went on to become the second-biggest film at the worldwide box office in 1992, and Houston’s rendition of Dolly Parton’s ballad I Will Always Love You became a classic.

Houston drowned in a Beverly Hills hotel bath in 2012 after a long history of drug addiction.

The Bodyguard would join a string of Hollywood movies to get a reboot. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper starred in a 2018 remake of A Star Is Born, and new versions of sci-fi classic Dune and musical West Side Story are due for release later this year.
