Warner Bros Remakes 《The Bodyguard》


華納兄弟電影公司,目前正著手進行咱家天后Whitney Houston在1992年掛頭牌演出的電影《The Bodyguard》的重拍計畫。

EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros is rebooting its 1992 hit The Bodyguard, the film that paired Kevin Costner with Whitney Houston and became for its time one of the biggest global hits in studio history with a $411 million worldwide gross.

The film will be scripted by Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer, whose action comedy script Family Getaway made the 2010 Black List and is a priority project at Warner Bros. Dan Lin will produce through his Lin Pictures banner, and Mark Bauch is co-producer.

Scripted by Lawrence Kasdan and directed by Mick Jackson, the original was a fairly straight ahead tale of a Secret Service agent (Costner in a Steve McQueen homage, down to his hairstyle) drafted to protect a singing diva whose life has been threatened by a stalker, then falling for her in a way he fears is a distraction from his job. The new version is similar, including the love story, but here the bodyguard will be a former Iraq war veteran who gets the job protecting the star as his first gig after leaving the Army. He discovers that the world of Twitter, Google Maps and TMZ has made access to celebrities easier than ever, making the job more difficult than ever. The goal is to take a young female singer with global appeal and give her the platform that The Bodyguard did Houston.

It becomes the second music-driven remake for the studio, which just got a commitment from Clint Eastwood to direct Beyonce. The studio is in the process of landing the male star.

Lin just wrapped Sherlock Holmes 2, and is producing with Kevin McCormick Gangster Squad, which Ruben Fleischer will direct. He is also developing the LEGO Movie, which has Phil Lord and Christopher Miller attached to direct. The scribes are repped by UTA and Mosaic.

華納將重拍惠特尼·休斯頓經典電影《保鏢》

華納兄弟公司今天透露他們正在籌備重拍惠特尼·休斯頓(Whitney Houston)和凱文·科斯特納(Kevin Costner)在1992年主演的經典電影《保鏢》(The Bodyguard)。

華納兄弟公司今天透露他們正在籌備重拍惠特尼·休斯頓(Whitney Houston)和凱文·科斯特納(Kevin Costner)在1992年主演的經典電影《保鏢》(The Bodyguard)。

《保鏢》講述了一個退役的秘密特工被派去保護一個正受到匿名者騷擾的當紅女歌星,在相處的過程中兩人陷入了愛河……該片留下的最大財富就是惠特尼·休斯頓演唱的多首歌曲,其中更以“我將永遠愛你”(I will Always Love You)最為經典,被人們無數次翻唱,經久不衰。

值得一提的是,原版《保鏢》導演Mick Jackson去年導演了電視電影《自閉歷程》(Temple Grandin),並獲得了艾美獎。

新版《保鏢》仍計畫找當今歌壇的當紅女歌星來主演,目前編劇Jeremiah Friedman和Nick Palmer已經受雇創作劇本。

重拍版的《The Bodyguard》,目前正由編劇Jeremiah Friedman,Nick Palmer著手進行新版電影的劇本編寫,導演仍由當年惠媽版《終極保鑣》的導演Mick Jackson來擔任,至於大家較在意的新版電影主角人選則是尚未確定。

針對華納的的這個計畫,我還蠻無言的.....

2011/03/12 Update:雨傘妹Rihanna對外宣稱,她對參與《The Bodyguard》的重拍計畫,一點興趣也沒...


Rihanna Won't Star In The Bodyguard Remake

By Helen Sanders On March 7, 2011

Last week saw reports suggest that Rihanna was being lined up to take on Whitney Houston's role in the highly anticipated remake of the 80's classic, The Bodyguard.

However, the Only Girl (In The World) star has denied the claims, revealing that she is not interested in pursuing singing acting roles.

In an interview with OK! magazine, Rihanna was asked if she was interested in being part of the remake to which she answered: "Absolutely not. I want to separate the two."

She elaborated: "I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else."

Of her fledgling acting career, Rihanna continued: “I want to play a character, my whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer won’t be a stretch for me.

“I like challenges and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else’s shoes, that’s the excitement."

Rihanna is set to star in Battleship later this year. Do you think she has what it takes to be a successful actress?

在接受《OK!雜誌》專訪中,雨傘妹說她沒有要接演《The Bodyguard》重拍版的計畫。鴨子聲女伶在專訪中提到:她討厭看到歌手在電影演出裡唱歌!

還好雨傘妹有自知之明,知道自己演技及歌藝都不如人,不然好好的一部惠媽經典電影,可能就在她的手中毀了!

  1. 我跟你一樣對於華納要重拍這部片也很無言,我覺得沒人可以超越過惠媽當年所創下的記錄,說實在的,因為惠妮只有一個,沒人可以代替她~~(我這樣會不會太造神呢?哈哈~~我就是愛惠妮~~)

    我覺得重拍這電影,是個爛到不行的點子!
    ◎當今樂壇,有誰能把阿惠那驕傲女獅王的神情,經典到位詮釋?
    ◎當今樂壇,有誰能把歌曲翻唱後,成績棒到蟬聯14週冠軍單曲?
    ◎當今樂壇,有誰掛頭牌的電影原聲帶,賣得比阿惠好?

    我不要雨傘妹、我不要女神卡卡、我不要碧昂斯.....等等女伶,來毀了眾多惠妮迷心中的經典電影!

  3. 我看了也覺得好無言,
    要超越惠媽, 真的不是那麼容易,
    現在新生代的女歌手, 也找不到像惠媽這麼會唱又有外型的,
    太難找了~

  4. 我也一樣... 很無言... 而且很不爽...

    覺得華納想重拍完全是想趁惠媽復出的熱潮來撈一筆,畢竟這片當時賣的太好了。不過當然不可能超越當時原版的,只是到時候還是會有人因為原版的成功而去看的說。很不希望會毀了這部惠媽經典電影呀...

    可是桃莉阿嬤肯定很高興,因為她的IWALY說不定又可以再靠重拍繼續撈錢了 > <

  5. 就電影演出和演唱功力來說,Beyonce跟Jennifer Hudson絕對適合新版的The Bodyguard。
    這樣想就蠻令人期待的,希望拍得成!

    能超越惠媽的人,只有惠媽啊!

    華納要重拍撈錢,這我沒意見!但電影的原創歌曲,他們最好重新寫過,別拿惠媽唱過的那幾首單曲,隨便找個阿貓阿狗來翻唱....

    如果電影原創歌曲重新寫過,那桃莉阿嬤應該也沒啥搞頭了XD.

  8. Re.a-farn:
    雖然Beyonce,Jennifer Hudson都是各有長才的歌手,但如果是唱惠媽唱過的原創歌曲,我還是覺得沒人能超越惠媽所詮釋的版本!

  9. @ Davin

    雖然我也不同意她們把惠媽的歌重新翻唱...
    因為確實沒人能把那些歌曲唱的比惠媽好聽,可是這整部電影 (歌曲跟電影) 對那些新生代女歌手而言,是一個不可措施的好機會去更紅... 所以我想那些歌曲很有可能會被她們來亂搞一番 (所以很反感被重拍...)

    畢竟那些歌全都是惠媽的經典歌曲,如果照學惠媽一樣去搞個什麼電影原聲帶等等的,我想沒有一個唱片公司跟歌手會放棄這賺錢加賺名聲的好機會的說。唉... 想到就難過,希望電影的歌曲是重新寫過的,不然那些名曲就要被毀了...

    ReplyDelete
  10. 話說剛剛又把這部 "保鑣" 重新看了一遍,看的很感人呀!
    惠媽的演技很棒,而且整個人美到破表!
    順便給大家回味一下電影版的IWALY... 惠媽跟凱文叔深深地擁抱 + 惠媽完美的歌聲,太銷魂啦!重拍怎麼可能拍的比原版好呢... 唉~ 勸華納趕緊打消這個念頭~

  11. Re.Con:
    這幾天的媒體報導,都圍繞著Rihanna可能拿到當年惠媽所飾演的角色,關於這點,我更無言....

    雖說Rihanna可能加入新版The Bodyguard的拍攝傳言,早在2年前就傳過,但隨著這次華納正式宣佈開拍The Bodyguard新版的消息傳出後,Beyoncé,Rihanna一直都被傳是片商的口袋人選,偏偏這兩人都是有姿色卻沒演技一族,試問這樣的人選加上當年被傳唱的電影原創歌曲可能被翻唱,我每每想到,就覺反胃!

    我還是要再次重申:翻拍新版電影我可以接受,但電影裡的原創歌曲,他們最好重新寫過,別拿惠媽唱過的那幾首單曲,隨便找個阿貓阿狗來翻唱....

    PS.The Bodyguard我也重複看過N遍,惠媽當年演技雖然青澀,但那驕傲女獅后的氣勢+美貌,著實無人能及啊!希望華納能收回成命,不要毀了惠妮的演藝生涯經典....
