Rihanna’s explosive career is going to be chronicled in a documentary by producer Peter Berg, EW has confirmed. Berg and Rihanna worked together when she starred in his 2012 film, Battleship, and now he wants to take her success story to the big screen. 

In a theatrical feature documentary, the film is an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon,” according to Deadline. Similar to Bob Dylan’s documentary Don’t Look Back, Berg said, the project will be “much more a character study than a music film.”

Berg has launched a new production company, Film 45, which will focus on non-scripted projects for film, TV, and other platforms.
