scandal 20/08/2018

The director of a documentary on singer Rihanna has promised it will be released by the end of the year, two years after it was first announced.

The film is said to be an "unfiltered look into Rihanna's life and how she's ascended to become a global icon".

Director Peter Berg (Mile 22, Patriots Day, Deepwater Horizon) says the film will be modelled after legendary Bob Dylan documentary Don't Look Back.

It reportedly focuses on Rihanna at work on her 2016 album, Anti.

"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," Berg told Rolling Stone.

"She's a really, really interesting woman and the movie will be out in about a month-and-half, two months."

Berg cast Rihanna in 2012 sci-fi Battleship. Previously she had appeared in Bring It On: All or Nothing and most recently starred in Ocean's Eight.
