Rihanna will definitely not star in The Bodyguard remake

The popstar categorically rules it out

Rihanna has refuted the currently-circulating rumour that she will star in the planned remake of The Bodyguard.

The singer claimed she would "absolutely not" be starring in the role made famous by Whitney Houston in the 1992 thriller.

Speaking to OK, Rihanna said: "I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time because you can never look at them as anybody else."

"I want to play a character. My whole life is playing Rihanna, being a singer [in a film] won't be a stretch for me."

"I like challenges and being an actor is playing a role, being able to step into somebody else's shoes, that's the excitement."

She does have a point, as 'singer movies' are frequently atrocious (we all remember Glitter...).

The Bodyguard remake currently has a tentative 2012 release pencilled in, with Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer said to be working on the script.

Rihanna will make her acting debut in Peter Berg's Battleship, which is set to open on 18 May 2012.

Who do you think should play the popstar in The Bodyguard update? Susan Boyle? Justin Bieber? Let's have your predictions below!

      First, good, because this girl is completely 2 dimensional. Second, I hardly think she has no credentials to as she puts it "step into somebody else's shoes", I mean lets face it, she is hardly Cher, more flash in the pan taking FULL advantage of the 15 minutes of fame.
