Rihanna is apparently top of the list of stars being considered to appear in a remake of The Bodyguard.

Warner Bros has greenlit an updated adaptation of the 1992 hit action romance which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner and which featured the number one single I Will Always Love You, Deadline reports.

The new film will apparently be scripted by Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer reports.

Rihanna, who makes her acting debut in action movie Battleship next year, was previously rumoured to be keen to appear in a remake of the film, which was one of the studio's biggest global hits, taking in 411 million US dollars worldwide.

But other names are also being linked to the film, including Miley Cyrus and Beyonce.

However Beyonce looks an unlikely candidiate as she is due to star in Clint Eastwood's remake of Judy Garland's A Star Is Born, which is also being produced by Warner Bros.

GI Joe hunk Channing Tatum has been linked to the part of The Bodyguard.
