Not content with merely being a singer, songwriter, actress, dancer, perfume creator and fashion designer, Beyoncé is adding "documentary filmmaker" to her packed resumé. The subject? Herself!
The LA Times reports that the 30-year-old and her agency minions have spent the past few weeks pitching "a nonfiction film to Hollywood studios about [her] life and career".
An anonymous source close to the project called it "a mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview".
Sounds eerily similar to that other concert movie/marriage therapy session Katy Perry released back in July, don't you think?
The source also revealed that Beyoncé will not only star in the project, but she will direct and produce it too (Katy didn't direct her film!).
This would be the first time the mum of seven-month-old Blue Ivy and wife of Jay-Z takes on directing duties.
Last year, she appeared in an MTV documentary last year called Beyoncé: Year of 4, so we’re curious about how she'll make the next one different.
Our nominations for moments we'd like to see in the film include:
- Blue Ivy's birth on her very own hospital floor booked out for a sweet $1.3 million.
- Beyoncé partying with Kim Kardashian at Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne show in June.
- The New Jersey comeback concerts in May that marked the singer's first post-pregnancy gigs. Michelle Obama took the kids, they loved it.
Distributors have been shown 20 minutes of footage from the as-yet-untitled concert film-cum-doco. In the meantime, Beyoncé has the 20th Century Fox computer-animated flick Epic out next year.
