The brainchild of Peter Berg - who previously directed Rihanna in Battleship in 2012 - the film will be made by Berg's production company, Film 45, and will be "much more a character study than a music film," the director told Deadline.
"Follow this true international superstar as she navigates life as an artist, businesswoman, and humanitarian, while contending with the inherent pressure of artistic freedom," the Film 45 website said. "Peter Berg's Rihanna is an unfiltered look into Rihanna's life and how she's ascended to become a global icon, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world's most well-known pop artists."
Berg shared a picture of himself with Rihanna earlier this week on Instagramalongside the words: "This girl RiRi she's not bad. See I'm smiling, I ain't mad." No date has been given for the film's release as yet, but fans of the singer are assured that it is "coming soon".
