Warner Bros. is in the midst of remake fever, with the 1992 hit The Bodyguard the latest to get a retread.

The studio has hired Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer to write the script Studio-based Dan Lin will produce.

The original starred Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston and spawned one of the biggest ballads of all time, "I Will Always Love You." It entered on a former Secret Service agent hired to protect a world famous pop singer. While initially uncomfortable in her glitzy world, the man eventually falls for her, compromising his ability to protect her.

The original was written by Lawrence Kasdan and was the first script written by the scribe, best known for penning Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Big Chill. It was meant as a vehicle for Steve McQueen and Diana Ross.

In the remake, the story would be updated so that the man would be a former Iraqi war vet trying to protect his client against an Internet world, in which stalkers can track stars on Twitter, Gawker Stalker, Google Maps and countless other sites.

Warner Bros.' Sarah Schechter is overseeing. It's too early in the process for actors to be announced.

Friedman and Palmer wrote the action-comedy script Family Getaway, which is set up at the studio and made the 2010 Black List. The duo is repped by UTA and Mosaic.

The news comes just a month after the studio announced plans to have Clint Eastwood direct Beyonce in the musical remake of A Star Is Born.

oddly enough i saw this movie 2 weeks ago.. the old one of course, i thought it was fairly mediocre. a solid 4/10 movie, and they are going to remake this shitty movie with an even shitter story line. come on.

srsly just come on

if they make this there better be naked chicks. lots of hot naked chicks. i mean jessica biel and scarlet johanson better be topless and making out in a shower or something.

I think they should just make Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johannsen make out in a shower for 90 minutes and forget the rest of the script.

Them casting Mark Whalberg in the Uncharted movie did it for me.

sounds like a great movie, unlike this remake of an already crappy movie.
