Beyoncé Knowles is set to direct a jukebox documentary about her life, reports the L.A. Times. After a banner year in which the pop superstar released a hit album (4), had a baby with husband Jay-Z and performed for the First Lady and her daughters, the singer, who’s already dipped her toes into acting, will step behind the camera for a project described as concert film-meets-confessional.
A 20-minute cut of the flick has been shopped around to distributors. A slew of musical pop docs has been released over the last few years, and the movies have seen varying degrees of success. Never Say Never, a Justin Bieber narration, opened to nearly $30 million in February 2011. That’s more than Kate Perry’s recent Part of Me has grossed in its first four weeks despite surprisingly strong critical notices.
