Rihanna has been killing it lately in the fashion industry, but it looks like Rihanna might be taking over the film industry as well. Amazon has landed a multi million dollar to obtain the rights of a Rihanna documentary produced by Peter Berg. It is reported that Amazon paid 25 million dollars for the films rights. This deal is compared to Billie Eilish. She has landed a deal with Apple TV to produce a documentary about her life in partnership with Interscope Records.
Peter Berg told media outlet THR, “That was a fun change of pace…to go travel with Rihanna around Europe, and Rihanna is surrounded by girls. We were in Nice. 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.”
Rihanna also had a deal to showcase her Savage X Fenty lingerie show on the Amazon Prime streaming service. Peter Berg hopes to distribute this documentary with many and maybe all streaming services. Over 2 million people have Amazon Prime according to The Verge.
