Amazon Prime has paid $25 million to secure the rights to a documentary about Rihanna, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film has reportedly been in the works for several years, and is helmed by Peter Berg, who directed Rihanna in the 2012 film Battleship.
"With unparalleled access into the singer’s life and more than 1,200 hours of footage," The Hollywood Reporter writes, "the doc offers private insights into Rihanna’s personality, sense of humor, work ethic, family and love." No release date for the film has been announced.
The $25 million figure is the same amount paid last week by Apple for a documentary about pop star Billie Eilish to air on its streaming service Apple TV+.
