R+B star Usher's new movie IN THE MIX is a new take on classic movie The Bodyguard.

In the film, the Yeah?! hitmaker is hired to protect a Mafia boss's daughter, played by Emmanuelle Chriqui, when she is caught up in a gang war.

Chriqui, who starred opposite 'N Sync in pop film On the Line, admits the new film leans heavily on the hit 1992 film, which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner: "It's a little bit like that film."
