Rihanna documentary coming soon: She’s a really, really interesting woman, says director


Getty Images via ABCRihanna will be the subject of a new documentary to be released before the end of the year.  The doc is directed by Peter Berg, who was behind the camera for the singer’s first film, 2012’s Battleship.

“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,” Berg tells

“The work ethic, the talent, luck, the hustle, the vision,” he continues. “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.”

Berg, whose latest film is Mile 22 starring Mark Walhberg, has been working on the project for three years. He calls the documentary the story of “a young artist at the top of her professional field” in a movie that’s “much more a character study than a music film.”

It has been not been decided whether the untitled documentary will be shown in theaters, or go directly to treaming services.

Rihanna has been spotted recently in Cuba with Donald Glover; the two are reportedly working on a new film titled Guava Island.
