Beyoncé is reportedly on the brink of securing a deal to bring her celebrated Renaissance World Tour to theaters.
As reported by Variety on Saturday, the discussions involve the distribution of the concert film directly to AMC Theatres.
This upcoming movie, rumored to release on Friday, December 1, would encompass footage from the colossal live performances during her ongoing global tour.
It would provide a behind-the-scenes look at the immense production process. Furthermore, the film is expected to shed light on the creation of the album that inspired the tour, “Renaissance.”
The tour itself has been nothing short of a financial juggernaut, projected to accumulate a staggering $560 million in revenue as it concludes on Sunday, October 1.
Earlier this month, Beyoncé achieved another remarkable milestone, as her tour became the highest-grossing ever by a female act, surpassing Madonna’s iconic Sticky & Sweet Tour, which amassed over $411 million.
Aside from her touring success, the 42-year-old superstar continues to explore various avenues for financial ventures.
In late August, reports surfaced indicating that Beyoncé and her company, Parkwood Entertainment, were actively pitching a visual album to studios and streaming platforms, albeit without any confirmed takers at that point.
Directed by British filmmaker Nadia Lee Cohen, the film has been described as “artsy” and in line with Beyoncé’s previous visual albums, such as 2016’s “Lemonade” and 2020’s “Black Is King.”
Sources suggested that it possesses a distinct and somewhat unconventional style, described as “weirder” and noted for not being “Disney-fied.”
Although the “Renaissance” album was released in August 2022, no video content has been associated with it thus far.
Fans had long speculated the existence of a visual offering, and these suspicions were seemingly confirmed by sources who revealed that “Renaissance” had been presented to select studios and streamers around four to six months ago, although it failed to secure a deal during that period.
