Whlie yall are waiting on Rihanna to release a new album, she’s worried about getting to the coin, and she did just that!
Rihanna just made a major coin after a deal with Amazon for her long-awaited documentary.
Sources say that director Peter Berg alongside Riri had been shopping this doc to multiple distributors, with streamers making the most aggressive overtures.
However, after waiting to make the right deal, Amazon has agreed to pay $25 million for the untitled film’s rights.
Berg, who has worked with Rihanna before, has been working on the documentary for her fans for years. He says that this will give fans a look into her life and more than 1,200 hours of footage, the doc offers private insights into Rihanna’s personality, sense of humor, work ethic, family and love.
“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” Berg said to The Hollywood Reporter.
Rihanna is no stranger to Amazon as she released her Savage x Fenty fashion show on Amazon Prime which was a major hit!
As of now, Rihanna has not released a statement about the documentary, but just like her anticipated new music, we will just have to wait and see!
