Beyonce + Rihanna Both Need A Bodyguard
Rihanna and Beyoncé Knowles are reportedly battling it out to land the lead role in a remake of The Bodyguard.
The original 1992 movie told the story of spoilt singer-and-actress Rachel Marron who is forced to beef up her security team when she is targeted by a crazed fan. Whitney Houston played Rachel, while Kevin Costner was Frank Farmer, a former Secret Service agent hired to protect her.
It was recently revealed Warner Bros are planning to re-invent the box office hit and it has been claimed Rihanna and Beyoncé both have their sights set on the movie.
"Beyoncé has already established herself as an actress so she is the clear favourite for the role right now but it depends if they want to go for someone younger like Rihanna," a source said.
Beyoncé, 29, has already appeared in a host of films including Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records and Obsessed. Rihanna, 23, is due to make her big screen debut next year playing weapons officer Raikes in new action movie Battleship.
Other famous faces linked to the role include Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. It has been reported Ryan Reynolds is the current favourite to play the character made famous by Costner.
The new movie will see the lead female character being harassed by an obsessed fan through a social networking site, while the bodyguard hired to keep her safe will be an Iraq war veteran.
