More screen time for Ri-Ri
Director Peter Berg has revealed that his long-awaited documentary tracking Rihanna‘s rise to fame could be in cinemas in “about a month and half”.
The NME first reported on plans for the documentary back in 2015. It appears that the original description of the film as an “unfiltered look into the singer’s life” remains true.
The Lone Survivor director spoke to Slash Film: “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. The work ethic, the talent, luck, the hustle, the vision. 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 gave Rihanna her first major acting role in his 2012 action film Battleship. She has since appeared in Oceans Eight and Valerian.
The news comes days after rumours surfaced that Rihanna is shooting a film with Donald Glover. The pair were spotted working together in Cuba on a project tentatively titled Guava Island.
Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Rihanna could be working on two new albums to follow her eighth, double-platinum 2016 album, ‘ANTI’. And they might just be released before the end of 2018.
The biggest dancehall producers and singers have already been linked to one album, with R. City (Rihanna, Beyoncé), Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor (Vybz Kartel, Sean Paul), Linton “TJ Records” White (Serani, Vybz Kartel), Kranium, Chronixx all submitting material.
