Beyoncé is reportedly hoping to direct her first film, one that will focus on a subject she knows a great deal about: Beyoncé.
The L.A. Times has reported that the pop mega-star is pitching studios on a film about her life and career, one that she would (obviously) appear in as well as direct and produce.The Times piece says some studios have been shown 20 minutes of footage, although no one at ICM, Beyoncé’s agency, would confirm that information.
A distributor has not signed on yet. It would be interesting, though, if a deal is made just in time for Mrs. Jay-Z to formally announce the film’s release at this year’s MTV Vide Music Awards in September. She does like to break big news at that event, as we all undoubtedly remember from last year’s blazer-opening baby bump reveal.
If the project comes to fruition, would you pay money to watch the story of Beyoncé’s life on a big screen? Or would you rather: a. watch her star in a fictional film, like the delayed “A Star is Born”; or b. stare at the many fascinating photos on her Tumblr? Weigh in by posting a comment.
