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.
