“Rihanna” will be directed by Peter Berg and his production company Film 45. It posted about the project on its Web site, writing that the film will “follow this true international superstar as she navigates life as an artist, businesswoman and humanitarian, while contending with the inherent pressure of artistic freedom. Peter Berg’s ‘Rihanna’ is an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global [legend], providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists.”
Berg, of “Lone Survivor” and “Friday Night Lights” fame, directed Rihanna in her first feature film, “Battleship,” in 2012. Film 45 is a new production company he launched to focus on nonscripted projects.
Berg teased the upcoming film on Instagram two days ago, posting a photo with Rihanna and writing, “This girl RiRi she’s not bad. See I’m smiling I ain’t mad.”
Rihanna is a busy lady at the moment — in addition to Berg’s film, she’s touring Canada in promotion of her latest alum, “Anti,” and will take the tour to Europe this June. She launched her line for Puma during New York Fashion Week in February, and recently shared snaps of herself modeling Puma on her Instagram account. She’s also partnering with Manolo Blahnik on an upcoming collaboration.
The release date for “Rihanna” has yet to be revealed.
