Berg and Rihanna originally worked together on the singer’s first film, “Battleship” (2012), which was loosely based on the Milton Bradley board game. Berg is perhaps best known for directing “Friday Night Lights” (2004) and creating the subsequent TV show.
“I think she’s an extraordinary young woman and [the documentary] really is kind of a pretty comprehensive profile of what goes into making her this talent that she is,” Berg told Slash Film on Monday. “The work ethic, the talent, luck, the hustle, the vision.”
On Hot 97 last week, Berg similarly praised Rihanna’s work ethic as like nothing he’s ever seen.
