The pop rivals are said to be at the top of the list of potential lead actresses in a new version of Eighties hit movie The Bodyguard which starred Whitney Houston as a pop diva who falls for her protector, played by Kevin Costner.
“The crucial thing about this movie is that the star has to be able to sing and act,” reveals a movie insider. “Beyonce has already established herself as an actress so she is the clear favorite for the role right now but it depends if they want to go for someone younger like Rihanna.”
