There’s A Massive Rihanna Documentary Coming To Amazon And We Want It Right Now Thanks


Rihanna has been pretty busy these last few years, becoming a cosmetics and lingerie mogul, and it feels like we haven’t had any new music from her in forever. We may need to wait a little longer for that, but on the bright side, it seems that a massive documentary about all things Rih is coming our way very soon.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amazon recently paid a whopping $25 million for the still untitled documentary, which is directed by Peter Berg. He worked with Rihanna on Battleshipand his film is said to be an “unfiltered” look into her life, cut together from more than a thousand hours’ worth of footage.

Not much is known about the current status of the project, but Berg spoke about it several years ago and revealed some pretty wild details about following Rihanna on a European tour:

“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.”

The production company  behind the film described it by saying:

“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.”

There’s no word yet on a release date for the film.
