Beyoncé is taking matters into her own hands with a still-to-be-titled feature-length documentary set for HBO.
The premium network will broadcast the singer/actress extraordinaire's film February 16th, which she shot in part from a laptop. The on and offstage look into the star's life will span glimpses of her childhood to prepping for performances, running her business empire and life with Jay-Z and the birth of her daughter.
"Everybody knows Beyoncé's music, but few know Beyoncé the person," HBO programming president Michael Lombardo is quoted via Deadline. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamor to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."
Beyoncé is also an executive producer on the feature.
It looks like Clint Eastwood is facing another empty space, but this time the repercussions could hit the wallet. Beyoncé Knowles has quit his forthcoming remake of A Star is Born - and it's even for the second time. The musical take on the well-known tale has been made three times by Hollywood.
Let's see — after Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio and now reportedly Tom Cruise, who's left to consider to star opposite Beyoncé Knowles in Clint Eastwood's long-planned, probably-never-gonna-happen Star is Born remake? George Clooney? Brad Pitt? Liam Neeson? Viggo Mortensen? Jean Dujardin? Philip Seymour Hoffman? Albert Brooks? Charlie Sheen? Matthew Broderick? Peter Dinklage?
Richard Dreyfuss? (Too busy.) Ned Beatty? Danny McBride? Roberto Benigni? Peyton Manning? Who did I forget? [Deadline]
