Rihanna and Amazon seem to be a match made in heaven. Highly anticipated and never forgotten by fans, the Rihanna documentary might be actually coming soon.
Hollywood Reporter reports that Amazon, with whom Rihanna collaborated on streaming he amazing Savage x Fenty show this year, paid $25 million for the Peter Berg directed doc.
Amazon reportedly paid $25 million for yet untitled film’s rights but declined to comment.
Rihanna: Volume One coming soon
The Film 45 (Peter Berg’s production company) updated their website with Rihanna documentary listed as Coming Soon and Amazon listed as Network partner which pretty much confirms the Amazon deal reports. They also included the first photo from the documentary which portrays Rihanna in the studio.

Amazon deal – Samsung deal
Not to get your hopes up too high, but Rihanna’s Samsung deal that hit the Net in October 2015, was also a rumour but it turned out to be a big campaign for her eight studio album, ANTI.
Does that mean that the album could be coming before the year ends or just a the beginning of a new decade? We will see.
Peter Berg talks documentary
Peter Berg talked with Hollywood Reporter about the project last year and when asked about the Rihanna documentary back then he said:
I’m finishing that now. We’ve got about a thousand hours of footage. That was a fun change of pace. After LoneSurvivor and Deepwater and Patriots Day, where all these men run around with guns, 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.Peter Berg talks Rihanna documentary
Fans might be wondering why it takes them so long to release the documentary but it was the same with the Rihanna book. So much is to cover that to make it exceptional and attractive for fans they have to take their time.
