Rihanna’s Getting Her Own Documentary, Y’all
Everybody’s favorite Bad Gal is coming to the big screen — again.
Nearly three years after Rihanna made her feature film debut in Battleship (and said a bunch of mostly short lines), the movie’s director, Peter Berg, has announced plans to make a full-length documentary about the 27-year-old singer. The doc, which will be an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon,” is one of several projects in the works under Berg’s new unscripted production company, Film 45.
According to Berg, whose resume also includes the 2004 film, Friday Night Lights and the beloved TV show of the same name, the Rihanna documentary will be more of a “character study than a music film.” [via Deadline]
As the Navy family waits for more news on this exciting character study, let us kindly remind you that you can catch RiRi on the big screen this spring — in animated form. Rihanna is the voice of Gratuity “Tip Tucci,” the teenage hero in DreamWorks’ new animated pic Home, which also stars the voices of Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin.
The soundtrack, created by Rihanna, is already on iTunes and in stores right now. Home opens Mar. 27.
