The true love story of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne is headed to the big screen with a feature biopic from Sony Pictures, Variety reports. The yet-untitled project will dramatize one of the most resilient marriages in all of rock music.
At the helm of the project is Oscar-nominee Lee Hall (Rocketman, Billy Elliot), who will chronicle the English couple’s relationship through the Oz Man’s days in Black Sabbath through the family’s 15-minutes of fame on MTV‘s The Osbournes.
“Our relationship at times was often wild, insane and dangerous but it was our undying love that kept us together,” Sharon Osbourne said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures and Polygram to bring our story to the screen.”
The film will also focus on Ozzy’s seven decades as a musician, with selections from the Black Sabbath and Ozzy solo catalog featured throughout. Sharon will produce the film alongside her children Jack and Aimée Osbourne via their label Osbourne Media. The family entertainment company was behind such documentaries as 2011’s God Bless Ozzy Osbourne and 2020’s A&E’s Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne. Also on board to produce are Michele Anthony (Beastie Boys Story) and David Blackman (The Velvet Underground) on behalf of Polygram. Andrea Giannetti is overseeing development for Sony.
