Costner to be Jessica's Bodyguard?
13:30 14 August 2005
Kevin Costner wants to make a sequel to 'The Bodyguard' - with Jessica Simpson.
The Hollywood actor, who has a script ready for the movie, believes the 'Dukes of Hazzard' babe would be a perfect replacement for Whitney Houston, who starred as a singer in the original 1992 film.
He revealed: "Ideally it would be great to get someone like Jessica Simpson on board to take the story to the next level.
"That's where we're at with the film at present - finding a leading lady."
In 'The Bodyguard', Kevin starred as Frank Farmer, a former Secret Service agent who is assigned to protect a beautiful pop diva, played by Whitney, after she receives death threats.
Meanwhile, Jessica recently made her big screen debut in the movie version of cult TV show 'Dukes of Hazzard'.
The sexy star appears alongside Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott as hotpant-wearing Daisy Duke.
