Rihanna Lands $25 Million Deal For Amazon Documentary
All Rihanna sees is dollar signs as of late! Amazon reportedly paid a whopping $25 million for a documentary featuring the mega star. Reportedly the deal payday was designed, specifically, to combat the $25 million deal given to singer Billie Eilish by Apple TV. The deal is reportedly for an intimate documentary. The docu is described as
“…an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists. With unparalleled access into the singer’s 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.”
Rihanna and the documentary’s director, Peter Berg, have reportedly been working on the project for years now. They already have camaraderie, seeing as Rihanna made her acting debut in his Battleship film in 2012.
Peter Berg has only given these details about the secret doc:
“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.”
More than likely the documentary will reflect the content in her coffee table book.
Neither Rihanna nor Amazon have commented on the announcement.
