Fans of Rihanna may soon get an up-close and personal look into the singer's life. Filmmaker Peter Berg has started a new production company called Film 45, Deadline reports, and a documentary on the star is one of the first major projects on the docket.

Rihanna follows in the footsteps of other music superstars—such as Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Beyoncé—who have themselves been the subject of documentaries in the past few years. According to Deadline, the film is described as an “unfiltered look into Rihanna’s life and how she’s ascended to become a global icon.” But don't expect it to have quite as many 3D musical numbers (or costume changes) as Katy Perry The Movie: Part of Me. Berg, who directed Rihanna in her first film Battleship, said the film will really look at “a young artist at the top of her professional field” and that it will be “much more a character study than a music film.” It sounds like it will be more along the lines of the HBO documentary Beyoncé: Life Is but a Dream.

It has been a busy 2015 for Rihanna so far. Last week she teased three new tracks off her eighth album, which will come out later this year. She also collaborated with Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney on “FourFiveSeconds” and is starring in the animated film Home, along with Jim Parsons, as the voice of an 11-year-old girl named Tip. The film comes out on March 27.

She is currently livening up Paris Fashion Week with her always remarkable sense of style—see the shoes she posted on her Instagram (we hope they'll make an appearance in her documentary!):
