A Rihanna documentary will be released in two months.
The singer is the subject of a new film by Peter Berg – who previously gave her a role in his 2012 movie ‘Battleship’ – and the director promised it will offer a “comprehensive profile” of the 30-year-old and what has made her who she is today.
He told SlashFilm: “I think she’s an extraordinary young woman and it really is kind of a pretty comprehensive profile of what goes in to making her this talent that she is. The work ethic, the talent, luck, the hustle, the vision. She’s a really, really interesting woman and the movie will be out in about a month and half, two months we’ll be able to start showing it.”
Details of the feature-length production first came about in 2015. Then, the documentary was described as an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon” and promised to be “much more a character study than a music film.”
It is believed the inspiration for the documentary was DA Pennebaker’s classic 1967 film about Bob Dylan, ‘Don’t Look Back’.
