Life Princess Diana Almost Played Next To Kevin Costner In ‘The Bodyguard 2’ By WeeklyNews staff Posted on July 3, 2019 3 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ At the end of 1992 the world got acquainted with the romantic thriller The Bodyguard by filmmaker Mick Jackson. In the lead roles we saw two very famous people: Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. The acting debut of the singing was a special event. A lot of money was raised, but was critics positive? Nope. The Bodyguard was even nominated for worst film, worst actor and worst actress. Nevertheless, there were discussions about a follow-up. Costner has said that before. But who would take over Houston’s place? During the Couch Surfing program of PeopleTV, the 64-year-old American told more. If we believe his story, it would be none other than Diana Spencer, the now deceased Princess of Wales. The first wife of the British crown prince Charles – and the mother of princes William and Harry – had expressed an interest in playing in a possible The Bodyguard 2. According to Costner, it was almost acknowledged by Sarah Ferguson, the former Duchess of York. Costner explains: “Sarah was very important. I have always respected her because she was the person who made conversations between me and Diana possible. She had arranged that. And she never said,” Well, what about me? I am also a princess. ‘ She was a strong believer in the idea. “ Costner was supposed to return if Frank Farmer and Diana’s character were to protect against the paparazzi and stalkers. Later their relationship would flourish in something romantic. Princess Diana saw that, but was worried about a number of things. “I remember she was very sweet on the phone,” Costner continues. “And she asked me:” Shall we have a kiss scene? ” She asked in a very respectful way. She was nervous because her life was pretty tied. And I answered, “Yes, a little bit of that will occur. But we can make that right.” According to the Oscar-winning director behind Dances with Wolves, the script was completed just a day before Diana’s death. She died on August 31, 1997 after a car accident in Paris.
