Along the way, the two fall in love.

The new film is said to be “inspired” by Whitney and Kevin’s romantic drama.

Kasdan was the writer-producer of the original.

He had written the script in the mid-1970s, which was intended for Steve McQueen and Diana Ross, but it fell through.

The new project has been discussed since 2011, but never got off the ground.

The casting won’t be easy because Houston not only looked great on screen, she also had that intense voice.

Riihanna could do it because she looks a bit like Whitney

And Beyonce definitely has the voice for the role and the charm

And Kevin has a star attraction that has made several movies, such as Bull Durham and Field Of Dreams, mega-hits.

Sometimes it thought Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson could star.

Channing Tatum and Cardi B also flew by.

More recently, fans on social media have been urging Beyonce or Rihanna to take charge with Ryan Reynolds in the role of Costner.

López is currently co-writing the musical adaptation of the classic movie Some Like It Hot starring Marilyn Monroe.
