An Ozzy Osbourne biopic is in its "very, very early" stages

Rock News 14/08/2020

A new biopic of Ozzy Osbourne is in the works, according to the rockstar's son, Jack Osbourne.

The film will follow Ozzy's wild life, but will focus more specifically on his relationship with his wife Sharon. Speaking to RollingStone, he said:

It’s how we met, fell in love, and how we married. She’s my other half. She grew up a lot with me, and I grew up a lot with her. We celebrated 38 years of marriage just recently.

Sharon pointed out that the film will not be for kids, and won't be a "squeaky, shiny clean" version of their lives. She said that the film will be "a lot more real" than the likes of Bohemian Rhapsody - which followed the lives of Freddie Mercury and his Queen bandmates.

"We're not making it for kids. It's an adult movie for adults," Sharon says. 

Jack Osbourne's production company is working on the film, and he's confirmed that they've got a writer locked in to chronicle the Osbourne's lives from the years 1979 to 1996.

Ozzy also has a documentary coming out soon, which was originally meant to premiere in March, but was pushed back to September 7th due to COVID-19. It's still not yet known when the rest of the world will be able to see it.

Fans of the heavy metal icon clearly have a lot of Ozzy content to look forward to.
