Costner Wants Simpson For Bodyguard II

KEVIN COSTNER has written a sequel to 1992 movie THE BODYGUARD - and he wants JESSICA SIMPSON to star alongside him.

Costner - who played minder to the stars FRANK FARMER in the first film, originally planned to cast DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES in the sequel, before her death in 1997.

But now he has rewritten the screenplay and is chasing Simpson - who makes her big screen debut in THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.

Costner says, "Ideally it would be great to get someone like Jessica Simpson on board to take the story to the next level.

"That's where we're at with the film at present... finding a leading lady."

We would be most grateful if your organization would help us to get in touch with Mr Kostner, as we are very keen to request him to take a look at our proposal to direct [in the genre of his "Dances with Wolves"] an INDO-BRITISH Co-Production of a feature film entitled Rajah LAWRENCE OF LUCKNOW, a story of love, with a historical background on the English Governor-General Sir Henry Lawrence.
