Rihanna Documentary in the Works From ‘Battleship’ Director
Rihanna Navy, you're about to see a whole new side of your idol! While we've peeped pretty much every conceivable angle of the pop superstar thanks to her super sultry Instagram pics, this time, we're ogling over her in a different light — in a new documentary!
Deadline reports that Battleship director Peter Berg will be making a doc about the "FourFiveSeconds" singer that offers viewers an "unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon." According to Deadline, the theatrical feature doc will be a "contemporary take" on the famous 1967 Bob Dylan documentary Don't Look Back, which followed his 1965 tour across England with Joan Baez. (We've loved it ever since we had to watch it in a documentary film class in college.)
Berg, who also directed RiRi in Battleship, hopes to make the doc "much more a character study than a music film," Deadline reports. The director said he became intrigued by the idea when he realized he wanted to study "a young artist at the top of her professional field." And really, who better to pick than Rihanna?
Of course, as fans know, Rihanna has already been the subject of a documentary — her 777 Tour doc, to be precise. And as a matter of fact, PopCrush was there to capture the whole wild experience! For your viewing pleasure, check out our exclusive 777 Tour videos.
