The stage musical adaptation of "The Bodyguard," the 1992 film that starred late Grammy winner Whitney Houston, will open in London this November at the Adelphi Theatre, according to the Daily Mail.
Thea Sharrock is directing the stage property that will star Tony Award-winning Aida and Lion King actress Heather Headley, who will take on the central role of pop singer Rachel Marron.
Michael Harrison and David Ian are producing The Bodyguard, which has a book by Alexander Dinelaris (Zanna, Don't!). The musical will include the hits form the film, including "I Will Always Love You," "I Have Nothing" and "Run to You," as well as a host of songs from Houston's catalogue.
An official announcement about the musical's London debut has yet to be made.
