Amazon Studios has announced it is in production on a documentary film about Mary J Blige. The singer and Sean “Diddy” Combs will serve as executive producers on the currently untitled project.
The film follows Blige as she is set to perform her sophomore album My Life for the first time ever on a 25th anniversary tour. According to a press release, it “provides a personal and never before seen look into the emotional journey of Mary J. Blige’s past struggles with poverty, abuse, addiction and heartbreak.”
Blige was recently cast in Respect, a new Aretha Franklin biopic starring Jennifer Hudson and Forest Whitaker. Her new box set HERstory Vol. 1 collects some of her biggest ’90s hits, and rare remixes. It’s due out December 6 via UMe.
