Multi-award winning musician, fashion icon and occasional actress Beyoncé Knowles is ready to don a new hat – documentary director.
The L.A. Times reports that Knowles, along with reps at her talent agency, have been shopping around a documentary about her life and career to Hollywood studios. The project would follow the same blend of Katy Perry's recent documentary which featured a blend of behind the scenes footage as well as musical numbers.
Knowles will serve as not only the director of the project, but producer as well, giving her control on all levels of production. Twenty minutes of footage has been shown to potential distributors. No word yet on if any of them have agreed to a deal.
Last summer, MTV aired Beyoncé: Year of 4, a mini-documentary that showed her taking time off and then eventually returning to the recording studio.
Feature documentaries about musical superstars have been easy money for studios. In addition to the recent Katy Perry movie, docs about Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brother and Justin Bieber have been financial successes. Next fall brings a 3D concert doc about boy band One Direction.
Would you be interested in seeing a documentary about Beyonce's life and career? She would certainly have a lot to include in there, from releasing a top-selling album, splitting from her long-time manager (her father) and having a baby with husband Jay-Z.

I'll wait for it on netflix
oh there's a surprise.
I'm pretty sure that the documentary will be interesting, but is it necessary to spend your money at the movie theater to see something that should be released on cable televison?! Its bad enough that the televison has been bombarded with "reality tv" but do we have to see it at the movies. I like my documentaries to be educational, informational, and even inspiring. The only way I am willing to spend money on a documentary if it spreads awarness about something. With that being said..... If the documentary is about Beyonce .... I would hope that she starred in it.
I think it'll be an awesome idea although I'm yet to see Katy Perry's until Monday. Please shoot it in 3D plus i enjoyed the Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana doing it. However I only saw Hannah Montana's on Disney Channel where they cut off the controversial moment where Miley did not have her seat belt put on.
I feel a doc about Mrs.B is a wonderful idea because it shows us the fans that she is more human then just the A typical celebrity.
oh is beyonce gonna star in a documentary about her? YOU DON'T SAY!? (that was sarcasm btw)
Yes, it's called narcissism. I would like her if she weren't such a Tina Turner wannabe. Watch Jay-Z turn into Ike real soon
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
