The musical will feature such hits as: 'Queen of the Night,' 'So Emotional,' 'One Moment in Time,' 'Saving All My Love,' 'I'm Your Baby Tonight,' 'Run to You,' 'I Have Nothing,' 'How Will I Know,' 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' and one of the greatest hit songs of all time - 'I Will Always Love You.'
"Thea Sharrock will direct Heather Headley in the role of the rock star Rachel Marron (the part Whitney played). All the songs featured in the movie, including ‘I Will Always Love You’, will be there, and that score will be augmented by a dozen other numbers that Whitney made famous," dailymail.co.uk reports.
In the 1992 film The Bodyguard, a former secret service agent (Kevin Costner) serves as bodyguard for a mega pop superstar-turned actress (Houston). In the course of protecting the star, they develop a trust and love that is rare for both.
