Rihanna Documentary in the Works
A Rihanna documentary is on the way. As the superstar shatters Billboard records and travels the globe on her “ANTI World Tour,” Film 45 has announced that it will produce a new documentary on the “Work” songstress.
Deadline calls the doc a “contemporary take on the 1967 Bob Dylan rock doc Don’t Look Back.” According to the report, the film will give fans an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.”
There is no release date or timetable at the moment.
Peter Berg, who runs Film 45 and who gave Rihanna her first acting break in 2012’s Battleship, is set to direct. Berg also runs the movie and TV production company Film 44. He recently launched the company to focus on non-scripted entertainment and the Rihanna doc is one of its first projects.
The announcement comes as Rihanna’s “Work”—her 14th No. 1—remains at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for an eighth consecutive week, tying her with The Beatles for the second-most total weeks at No. 1.
