Rihanna has just been paid $25 million by Amazon for the worldwide rights to a movie about her life…
The pop icon has sold a documentary to Amazon for the tune of $25 million. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the streaming giant purchased worldwide rights to the Peter Berg-directed film about the superstar singer.
The untitled Rihanna doc, which has been in development for years, is an unfiltered look into the singer’s life. Endeavor Content began shopping the project to multiple distributors and showed footage in Cannes in May before finalizing the deal with Amazon.
“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,” writes THR.
$25 mill isn’t bad for a documentary that Rihanna had pretty much already shot anyway!
