Rihanna fans have been waiting for the singer’s forthcoming documentary for a long time.
Last December, we heard the news that Amazon had paid a sum of $25 million to grab the rights to the highly anticipated film directed by Peter Berg. In a new piece about some of Berg’s forthcoming projects, Deadline has slipped the news that the documentary is titled Rihanna: Volume 1.This could also mean that the documentary could be a series.
Rihanna and Peter Berg previously worked on the 2012 film Battleship and had exclusive access to the singer’s day to day life for past many years. According to the description, it’s “an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists.” It also mentions: “unparalleled access into the singer’s life and over 1,200 hours of footage.”
The doc, the release date for which is still not revealed, takes viewers on “a journey through private insights into Rihanna’s personality and humor, philosophies on work, family and love that are both moving and inspirational.”
Berg previously gave THR details about the project: “That was a fun change of pace…to go travel with Rihanna around Europe, and Rihanna is surrounded by girls. 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.”
