I hope this is a made up story, but Rihanna was in New York this weekend, supposedly to discuss film projects…

…one of which is a proposed remake of 1992’s Whitney Houston/Kevin Costner flick, “The Bodyguard.” Rihanna would be taking on Whitney’s role in the updated version, which an insider says would be a “young and sexy take” on the favorite film. “GI Joe” hottie Channing Tatum’s name has been bandied about to take on Costner’s role.

Hmm, somehow I don’t think Rihanna singing “I Will Always Love You” would be such a good idea.  Maybe they could call this one “Crappy Bodyguard.”
