Do You Like The Bodyguard By Kevin Costner? There’s A Heart Breaking Reason Why It Didn’t Get A Sequel

MOVIE NEWS – Kevin Costner came up with a fantastic plan: he wanted to make a sequel to The Bodyguard with an actual princess…



Kevin Costner has revealed that he once planned to make a sequel to The Bodyguard starring a real-life princess, Diana, Princess of Wales! In a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show, Costner revealed details about the envisioned sequel. He said, among other things, that Princess Diana would have appeared in it, although not as the romantic lead. Costner even managed to meet Diana before she tragically passed away on August 31, 1997, following a car accident in Paris.

The Yellowstone star opened up about their reunion and explained why he couldn’t continue with The Bodyguard 2 after the beloved princess died.

“She was very sweet. I wasn’t going to make the full romance about her … but there was going to be a moment… I never made that movie because I couldn’t replace Princess Di.”

Costner continued, detailing how he met one of Diana’s sons, Prince William. The latter specifically asked to meet the actor in Scotland. During the meeting, Vilmos revealed that his mother liked the actor very much.

“I sat across from him and he looked at me and he said, ‘My mom fancied you.’ It was the sweetest, gentlest thing.”

In the 1992 film The Bodyguard, directed by Mick Jackson from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan, Costner plays a former US Secret Service agent turned bodyguard. He is hired to protect a famous actress and singer played by Whitney Houston.

Although the film was poorly received by critics, it was a huge financial success. It became the second highest-grossing cinema of the year. The film’s remake has been in the works since 2021, but not much has been revealed about the project in recent years. Costner has often talked about what a pleasure it was to work with Whitney Houston. She also mentioned that it was her idea to do the a cappella performance of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”.
