Beyonce To Direct And Star In New Documentary
It seems the birth of baby Blue Ivy has taken the notoriously private Carter-Knowles clan from tight-lipped lovers to American’s favorite family to watch.
Bey Bey and Hov would barely even hold hands together in public before, and now the mommy banger has signed on to co-produce, direct and star in a new documentary all about her luxurious life.
Beyoncé Knowles has donned many guises in her entertainment career — musical superstar, fashion icon, actress (yeah, we’ll even count her “Pink Panther” turn).
Now she’s looking to add a rather different notch: documentary director.
Knowles and her representatives at agency ICM have in recent weeks been shopping a nonfiction film to Hollywood studios about the celebrity’s life and career.
According to a person familiar with the package who was not authorized to talk about it publicly, the movie is as a mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview. Knowles not only stars in the project but is directing it, and will also serve as a producer. About 20 minutes of footage has been shown to distributors.
Knowles certainly would have a lot to discuss in the doc. In the last 18 months, she’s released a top-selling album (“4”), split from her longtime manager (her father), and had a baby, Blue Ivy Carter, with husband Jay-Z, among other noteworthy events.
Although she’s attached to star in a potential remake of “A Star Is Born,” Knowles also has had a taste of the nonfiction film life. In June 2011, MTV aired “Beyoncé: Year of 4,” a “mini-documentary” that showed the artist taking time off and then returning to the recording studio.
Something tells us that there still won’t be much of momma Bey’s little baby baller in this film….but at this rate, you never know….
