Beyoncé Knowles, Director? Multi-Hyphenate Shopping Non-Fiction Feature Project To Studios

Beyoncé Knowles, Director? Multi-Hyphenate Shopping Non-Fiction Feature Project To Studios

Why not, right? She’s done (and continues to do) just about everything else – acting, singing, dancing, producing, clothing line, perfume… and maybe the toughest of them all – mother. She can do anything she wants, and given her international popularity, I doubt that she’ll have much trouble attracting interest from the studios she’s said to be shopping this upcoming documentary to.

Reported earlier today, Beyoncé Knowles just might make her feature film directorial debut, with a documentary that’s being described as:

… a mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview.

According to the LA Times, in recent weeks, Ms Knowles and her reps have been shopping a non-fiction film to Hollywood studios (showing 20 minutes of footage) that will center on her life and career that she will not only star in of course, but will also direct and produce. 

While it certainly won’t be the first time that Ms Knowles is the subject of a documentary film, it will be the first time that she’s the subject of a documentary film directed by her.

And with the eventful life she’s led in the last few years, baby, husband, split from her father, top-selling albums and singles, Grammy Awards, international popularity, and more, she certainly has plenty to talk about.

We’ll have our antennae on alert for any future developments on this project.

Beyonce doesn't waste her videos, so I'm gonna give her the (slight) benefit of the doubt that she will come up with an interesting look and aesthetic for this film too. Granted the same could be said much more for Erykah Badu, who actually directs her videos. Let's just switch to having a Badu-doc in the works instead.


Maybe she could chronicle her dad's love child as she grows up like british driector-michael apted..? or prim/style behind a director's viewfinder and bark orders..?..b/c ..Julie Dash she's definatley not.


Interesting. Hopefully it's personal and not like a concert doc a la "Katy Perry" or "Justin Beiber" but more like a look into the day-to-day life of an entertainment superstar…Could be really neat to watch imo.


Keeping up with beyonce knowles. That should be good name for the documentary.

the black police

LOL. Haters gon hate doe.


Beyonce can't be serious, just ridiculous!


I'm not a Bey hater, but she's completely overexposed. What new information
could possibly be revealed that the world doesn't already know about her that
would make for an interesting documentary?


"…what dreams may come…" with two movie cams and a microphone. I've oft thought about doc'ing myself, my fam, my dad and his brothers, my uncles. This sounds like a cool project for her. Hopefully she'll reveal what we don't already know or have seen…
