Despite execs at Warner Bros. giving a remake of Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner‘s 1992 film, ‘The Bodyguard,’ two thumbs up (as we reported here), fans of the ‘I Will Always Love You’ diva have been everything except in love with the announcement.
Taking to Twitter in droves, commenters slammed the news – with some arguing its untouchable soundtrack couldn’t be replicated while others cited Houston and Costner’s on-screen chemistry as the reason the classic movie shouldn’t be updated.
As the debate raged on about the forthcoming, Matthew Lopez-penned reboot, our friends at TMZ caught up with the late Pop icon’s ex-husband Bobby Brown for his two cents on the matter. His response came as a surprise to no one.
TMZ caught up with Brown Thursday (September 16) in Los Angeles and asked him “point-blank if he thinks remaking such a classic is a bad move.” He quickly responded, ‘Yeah.’
And while his sentiment echoes that of many around the world, the ‘Don’t Be Cruel’ crooner was kinder when quizzed about the recently released Aretha Franklin biopic, ‘Respect’ (starring Jennifer Hudson).
