Ozzy Osbourne‘s son Jack has confirmed that a biopic about his father’s early solo career and his marriage to Sharon Osbourne is in the “very, very early” stages.
Jack told Rolling Stone, “We have a writer. We said to go from 1979 to 1996. I can’t say too much, but the film is an active development.”
Ozzy said about the upcoming project, “From what I understand, it’s about Sharon and I and our relationship. 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 said, “I hope it will be a story that everybody can relate to. You don’t have to be a fan of the music, because it’s a story about a survivor. No matter what life throws at you, you pick yourself up and you start again. It’s just an amazing story of overcoming everything that’s thrown at you in your life.”
Sharon added that the film wil be ” a lot more real” that the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. She said, “We don’t want it to be squeaky, shiny clean and all of that. We’re not making it for kids. It’s an adult movie for adults.”
Another film about Ozzy, a documentary called Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne which is set to be a chronicle of the heavy metal icon’s life and career, is also on the way. Premiering in the USA on September 7, the film will feature interviews with Marilyn Manson, Post Malone and many more.
The film news comes after it was recently announced that the rock ‘n’ roll family would be reuniting onscreen for a paranormal reality show called The Osbournes Want To Believe. The series will see Jack Osbourne attempting to convert his sceptic parents into “full-fledged paranormal believers”.
