According to a report from the LA Times, Beyonce is shopping around a documentary film about her life. The documentary would include concert footage along with confessional interviews about her career and personal life.

The LA Times reports, “Knowles and her representatives at agency ICM have in recent weeks been shopping a nonfiction film to Hollywood studios about the celebrity’s life and career.”

Beyonce Knowles would not only be the star of the full length documentary, but she would also produce and direct the film. Beyonce is not new to the documentary arena. She appeared in a mini documentary, “Beyonce: Year of 4” which aired in June 2011 on MTV. (The mini documentary ”Beyonce: Year of 4″ is available in its entirety at

“Beyonce: Year of 4” focused on Beyonce’s return as an independent woman pushing her company through the rough waters of the music industry. It also followed her as she created a highly personal album. The short documentary also followed her while on tour.

On “Beyonce: Year of 4” she stated, “I want to set the example that (as young women) it is possible for us to own our own business, and own our own record labels. Sometimes we don’t reach for the stars. Sometimes we are satisfied with what people tell us we are supposed to be satisfied with, and I’m just not going for it.”

Beyonce would have plenty to discuss in her documentary film, including her successful career, the birth of Blue Ivy, her marriage to Jay-Z, and her split from her manager (her father, Mathew Knowles).

Documentaries about music stars lives have not fared well at the box office, however. Katy Perry: Part of Me has grossed just over 20 million to date. And the documentary Justin Bieber: Never Say Never did not fare well with critics.

Documentaries about music stars can be appealing to movie studios because they present a low cost. The concerts are already planned and the talent is already in place.
