From her music career, modeling success, acting roles, and most recent voice-over debut there is no end to the amount of things that Rihanna brings to the table. Let’s just say she’s quite the entertaining topic of discussion.
Filmmaker Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), principal of film/TV production company Film 44, has launched a new production company, Film 45, focused on non-scripted and branded entertainment for film, TV and other platforms. Film 45 formalizes a partnership between Berg and TV/documentary producer Matthew Goldberg (CNN’s The Sixties), who have been working together on Berg’s HBO Sports series On Freddie Roach and State Of Play. Goldberg serves as President of Film 45, which is based in Santa Monica.
One of the first projects that Film 45 will produce is a feature documentary about none other than bad gyal RiRi. The title remains unknown, but the doc will be using Bob Dylan’s 1967 Don’t Look Back as inspiration.
Berg, who is directing the upcoming doc, says the film will offer an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon,” and promises it’ll be “much more of a character study than a music film.” Credited for giving Rihanna her acting start with a role in his movie Battleship, Berg says he liked the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field.”
