Rihanna’s fans will get the inside scoop on the singer’s life when her biographical documentary hits screens. The Barbados native, 27, will allow director Peter Berg to make the biopic, Deadline reported.
Berg, 51, is known for directing films such as “Friday Night Lights,” “Hancock” and “Lone Survivor.” He also directed Rihanna in the 2012 action-adventure flick “Battleship.” The director said the movie about her will be an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.”
Fans will get to see the personal side of the “FourFiveSeconds” singer. Inspired by D.A. Pennebaker’s critically acclaimed 1967 documentary about Bob Dylan, “Dont Look Back,” the film will focus on Rihanna more than her music. The movie will be “much more a character study than a music film,” Berg said.
The announcement of her documentary came in the same week that Spotify gave Rihanna other great news: She is now the most streamed female artist in the world, Harper’s Bazaar reported.
A release date for Rihanna’s documentary has not been reported yet. However, it is anticipated to be one of the first projects carried out by Berg’s new production company, formed with documentary and television producer Matthew I. Goldberg. Called Film 45, the firm will focus on unscripted projects for several different media platforms.
