While there’s no word on an official Rihanna album, there IS word on an upcoming Rihanna documentary.
According to reports, Amazon landed worldwide rights to a documentary about the singer directed by Peter Berg. It’s rumored that Amazon paid a whopping $25 million for the rights to the film.
Amazon has declined to comment.
The untitled doc, which Berg began working on years ago, is dubbed 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 more than 1,200 hours of footage, the doc offers private insights into Rihanna’s personality, sense of humor, work ethic, family and love.
Berg previously gave THR details about the under-wraps project: “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.”
We can’t WAIT to watch this.
