Good news for fans of Ozzy Osbourne! According to Ozzy’s son Jack Osbourne, the long-rumored film centering around the early relationship between Ozzy and his wife Sharon Osbourne is still in the works.
Sharon Osbourne has previously spoke about the project a number of times over the years, but nothing has ever been definitive.
Sharon Osbourne spoke to Variety in 2019 in regards to a rumor floating around Hollywood of a script focusing on Ozzy’s life.
‘What a load of crap,’” Osbourne said. “It didn’t make sense. It didn’t have a heart, it just wasn’t me.”
Next, she proceeded to comment about how she was making her own film about her childhood, career and early days with the rockstar that would end with their marriage.
“I don’t want to do another rock and roll, sex, drugs and money movie about a musician,” Sharon said. “That’s not what I’m doing. There hasn’t been a movie about a woman that actually works on the management side — that’s a true story — and somebody that succeeds through the struggle and you come out the other side.”
“It’s everything before we get married, Sharon continues. “It’s the madness of my childhood, growing up in the industry with a powerful father who was somewhat violent.”
A few months later, Sharon Osbourne told Celebrity Access that she found a writer and was “doing [her] own movie.”
“There is absolutely things in motion right now to make [the Ozzy and Sharon film] a reality,” Jack said. “I think in the next few months, you’ll probably see something coming up about it. But we haven’t landed [a studio] yet. So, fingers crossed.”
When asked about who would Jack Osbourne like to see portray him in the film, he briefly touches on the film’s contents and says he would only be a child.
“I think the time period I would do it in, I would be a child in it. So I wouldn’t be so heavily featured,” Osbourne noted. “It’s going to be more about my mom and dad making their way through the world. I would be in the background just being annoying.”
