Whitney Houston made her acting debut in 'The Bodyguard' nearly three decades ago and now someone new will be filling her shoes. 

Warner Bros. has announced that a remake of the 1992 classic is in the pipeline. According to Variety, Tony-nominated playwright Matthew López will write the new film. 

Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote the original featuring Whitney and Kevin Costner, is one of the executive producers. The original grossed more than $400-million at the box office, while the soundtrack is one of the best-selling albums of all time. 

One Twitter user suggested that singer Lizzo and her celebrity crush, Chris Evans, should take on the lead roles.

Lizzo shared a video on TikTok that showed the suggestions made by fans. She is not mad at the idea.
