Alexandra Burke to play in `The Bodyguard`?
London: British singer Alexandra Burke has reportedly been offered the job of playing Whitney Houston`s character in a West End version of "The Bodyguard".
Directed by Mick Jackson, the movie is about about a former secret service agent who takes on the job of a bodyguard to a pop singer. Theater bosses are keen to sign Burke as Rachel, one of the leading roles, because of her powerful pipes.
They`re taking their adaptation of the hit 1992 film to the stage next year and have told the 22-year-old that the role is hers if she wants it.
"Alexandra is torn - the show would be an amazing gig and especially in London while the Olympics are on and it`s in the spotlight. But she also has her second album to think about," sun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
