AMAZON PAYS $25 MILLION FOR UNTITLED RIHANNA DOCUMENTARY – (12/13/2019)
Reports say Amazon has paid a pretty penny for the rights to a documentary about the life of Rihanna. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant paid $25 million for the untitled documentary. The documentary — which is directed by Peter Berg, features more than 1,200 hours of footage and will offer insight into the singer’s “personality, sense of humor, work ethic, family and love.”
Berg previously gave THR details about the project, saying, “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.”
No word on when the documentary will be released.
