Rihanna’s ‘Unfiltered’ Life to Be Highlighted in New Documentary
Rihanna is almost a decade into her music career. The singer's debut album, Music of the Sun, turns 10 years old this summer. With all of the hit singles, entrepreneurial endeavors and awards, it's not too surprising that a documentary will be created about her life.
According to Deadline, filmmaker Peter Berg, who recently launched a new production company called Film 45, has his eyes set on doing an in-depth film on the life of the "FourFiveSeconds" songstress as one of his first projects. Inspired by the 1967 Bob Dylan documentary, Don't Look Back, the film is said to be an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.”
Berg, the film's director, has worked with Rihanna before. He directed the 2012 action flick Battleship, in which the Bajan beauty starred. He told Deadline that he wanted to explore the idea of “a young artist at the top of her professional field." And instead of your typical music doc, this would be “much more a character study than a music film.” So expect a lot of personal moments and never-before-seen anecdotes from RiRi.
The Rihanna camp has yet to confirm or even respond to these plans, but we have our fingers crossed that the project will happen. In the meantime, Rihanna has been teasing us with songs from her new album, R8. While there is still no release date, she's released singles left and right including "Higher," "American Oxygen" and her hit with Kanye West and Paul McCartney, "FourFiveSeconds."
