(Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP) (Newser) – Beyonce is adding yet another hyphen to her already-multi-hyphenate career: documentary director. What type of documentary, you ask?

Knowles and her reps have been shopping the film, which will be a mix of concert footage and interviews, sources tell the LA Times. Beyonce will, of course, star; she'll also produce in addition to directing.
