“The Bodyguard” is the latest classic film to get a reboot and fans aren’t sure what to think.

First reported by Variety, ET can confirm that Warner Bros. has enlisted Matthew López, the Tony-nominated playwright of The Inheritance, to write the retelling of the iconic Whitney Houston film.

The new movie will be inspired by the 1992 romantic drama, which starred Houston and Kevin Costner and featured the show-stopping hit “And I Will Always Love You”. The original film made more than $400 million at the worldwide box office. The soundtrack is still considered the bestselling movie soundtracks of all time.

In the weeks since Variety‘s report, López revealed some casting plans.

“It’s so much fun,” López told the outlet. “When Warner Bros. approached me about the idea, I quickly said I would but I wanted the protagonist to be Latina. They agreed to that.”

He added, “Instead of focusing on an established star like the one Whitney Houston played, this is about a young Latina performer who has just become famous. It’s about how her life has changed because she is an overnight sensation. In the 21st century, that means she’s in immediate need of protection.”

After the news hit the Twitterverse, some fans of the original weren’t too happy. Others offered their casting choices.

No cast has been set for López’s script at this stage.
