Beyoncé to Produce and Star in a Movie Documentary About Her Life
About herself. According to the Los Angeles Times, the film will blend concert footage with confessional interviews to reveal details about both her career and her personal life.
For now, the film is just a proposal. Beyoncé and her agency, ICM, have been taking 20 minutes of footage around Hollywood – selling the idea of a music doc directed by its star, offering unprecedented access, the LA Times said.
According to Tmes Magazine, Beyonce isn’t a complete newcomer to the world of documentaries. It said Last June, she appeared in MTV’s Beyoncé: Year of 4, which outlined her return to the studio, after a year off, to record her album titled 4. But she merely starred in the short film — she didn’t direct or produce.
The new documentary now in the works will likely include additional footage about the hit album, along with details of last year’s split with her manager, Mathew Knowles (her father).
Also expected are segments about the birth of her now 7-month-old baby, Blue Ivy Carter, with her husband, hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. She returned to the stage just a few months later with a series of concerts in Atlantic City, and rumors began circulating just weeks after Blue Ivy’s birth about new albums in the works.
