Pop singer Rihanna is set to become the subject of a dramatic, feature-length documentary film, which will be helmed by Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, reports Deadline.

The film will reportedly attempt a “contemporary take on the 1967 Bob Dylan rock doc Don’t Look Back,” which covered Dylan’s 1965 tour of England.

Deadline describes the unnamed documentary as an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.”

The director told the site he liked the idea of examining “a young artist at the top of her professional field” and said the project will be “much more a character study than a music film.”

Berg, who currently heads the TV and film production company Film 44, has created a new production company, titled Film 45, which will reportedly focus on similar non-scripted and branded entertainment for film, TV and other platforms

Rihanna first entered the film industry with an acting role Berg’s 2012 film Battleship.
