Director Peter Berg shared a behind-the-scenes look.


Rihanna wants you to see who she really is.

Last year, filmmaker Peter Berg, who directed Friday Night Lights and 2012’s Battleship, which Rihanna starred in, announced he’s working on a theatrical feature documentary that will offer an “an unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon, providing a glimpse into the evolution of one of the world’s most well-known pop artists.”

It’s said to be a contemporary take on Bob Dylan’s staple doc Dont Look Back and will be much more of a character study than a music film. Berg said that he liked the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field.” He’ll capture her ascent to superstardom rather than following her musical recording journey of ANTi.

Berg isn’t offering any previews yet, however he did share a behind-the-scenes look at the “Kiss It Better” diva. He posted a snap of the two on Instagram, saying “This girl RiRi she’s not bad. See I’m smiling I ain’t mad.”
