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 CentDr. 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?
