2015 is shaping up to be an exciting year for music documentaries. First came the Backstreet Boys' Show 'Em What You're Made Of, then Eminem's Not Afraid: The Shady Records Story starring 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Royce Da 5’9″, and Em's manager, Paul Rosenberg. Today we can add our girl Rihanna to the list.
Filmmaker Peter Berg—the director/screenwriter/actor behind Battleship, Friday Night Lights, Hancock and The Rundown—has announced that he's working on a Rih-Rih documentary that will offer an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.” So: big deal.
The news comes with the launch of Film 45, a production company Deadline explains is "focused on non-scripted and branded entertainment for film, TV and other platforms." Berg is at the forefront of Film 45 with producer Matthew Goldberg (The Sixties.)
But back to business: can the doc tell us specifically Leonardo DiCaprio and Rih are/were actually dating?
