Rihanna could soon be belting out 'I Will Always Love You'

The singer is tipped for role made famous by Whitney Houston.

Warner Bros are currently looking for a singer to star in a remake of 1992 film The Bodyguard, which starred Houston and Kevin Costner.

Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus are all being considered for the part.

The film, which centres on a popstar being stalked by a secret admirer and her relationship with her bodyguard, was a huge hit at the time.

For the movie soundtrack, Houston famously sang a version of Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You ", which went to number one in the charts worldwide.
