Rihanna's New Rock Doc In The Works


Rihanna's New Rock Doc In The Works

RiRi's success to be highlighted in new film.

Published March 13, 2015

Rihanna has conquered a lot during her musical reign and it now looks like the Barbadian songstress’s life will be turned into a film in a rock type visual. According to Deadline, the theatrical feature documentary on the 28-year-old musical phenom is being "described as an updated version of the 1967 Bob Dylan visual 'Don’t Look Back' and takes an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.”


Rihanna’s memoirs will be directed by Peter Berg and produced through his production company, Film 45. Berg, who also cast the Rude Girl in her first film, Battleship, spoke more of the project, adding that the film will take a look at "a young artist at the top of her professional field” and is “much more a character study than a music film."

A release date hasn’t been set yet but we’re sure Ri-Ri will give us something in the meanwhile to tide us over, like maybe dropping the #R8 project. Hopefully the wait won’t be too much longer for either one but we’ll have to keep rocking to “FourFiveSeconds” for now.
