Rihanna Documentary To Be A Character Study Of Her Rise To SuperStardom
Here’s the thing. Not being exactly shy about it, Rihanna fans have been screaming all over the internet for more Riri. But, this may be the next best thing.
Director Peter Berg, which collaborated Riri on the 2012 science fiction film, Battleship, announced back in 2016 of a new collaboration with the star to tell her story. As opposed to a documentary, Peter Berg told Deadline that he considers the project to be more of a “character study.” Adding to that, he says that the doc is supposed to give an “unfiltered look” into the singer’s life, business, humanitarian efforts and her rise to superstardom, as reported by the Source.
In a 20107 interview, Berg stated to the Hollywood Reporter –
“We’ve got about a thousand hours of footage. That was a fun change of pace … to go travel with Rihanna around Europe, and Rihanna is surrounded by girls. We were in Nice [France]. She was going to do a concert on Bastille Day. And that truck driver who killed all those people plowed through them right in front of our hotel. So even in me trying to do something light, I had a very, very front-row seat to something that horrific.”
Here is how the production company describes the project –
Peter Berg’s bold and innovative Rihanna is an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists. With unparalleled access into the singer’s life and over 1200 hours of footage, the doc takes us on a journey through private insights into Rihanna’s personality and humor, philosophies on work, family and love that are both moving and inspirational.
So far, no date for it’s release. However, it is rumored to be real soon. You better believe, Rihanna fans everywhere are hanging on every word.
