Ozzy Osbourne

There's been some talk of a biopic focusing on Black Sabbath frontman and perpetually confused family man Ozzy Osbourne for years now. Almost seven years ago the project was supposedly near a greenlight, but since then only random television shows featuring different members of the Osbournes have manifested, not to mention a supposed documentary on Ozzy from his own son Jack. But according to The Dish Rag, it looks like the biopic is in active development as wife Sharon Osbourne opened up about the status of the project recently while promoting "Celebrity Apprentice", saying: "There's about to be a big announcement."

As for specifics, there weren't really any tossed around yet, but Sharon was very confident talking about it and even gave a timeframe as to when we might hear more about this long-gestating biopic. She explains:

"It's been picked up and it's going into production. We're going to make a press announcement hopefully within the next two weeks. [There's no cast] yet, but we have a producer and we have lots of money and we're all starting.

As for who might end up playing the infamous heavy metal pioneer, both Ozzy and Sharon have expressed how much they would have loved Johnny Depp to take the role (after all, Captain Jack Sparrow is simply a more coherent, swashbuckling version of Osbourne). However, Mrs. Osbourne did say that they're looking for "somebody new" to play Ozzy, as in an unknown actor, but she still has a dream as to who would play herself in the biopic: "An Education's talented beauty Carey Mulligan." That seems like a very odd choice, but seems okay to me, I guess. We'll be waiting for the big announcement, so stay tuned until we hear more.

    Johnny Depp isnt going to do this. He'll be nice about it, but he'll pass.

  • I'd be interested to see more about when he was a just a mad chavvy from Birmingham, as opposed to the pickled retard he is now.

    @ People's Champ I completely disagree with you. If Depp was offered this role I'm sure he would take it. I mean he looks like Ozzy, acts like Ozzy (POTC), plus anyone who would turn down this role is a complete idiot. And Depp's no idiot. @ almartva Ozzy is a God among musicians. Period. He is amazing. @ Devon Shaw Are you an idiot? Why not?! It's fucking Ozzy Osbourne! @ Crapola He isn't a retard. He has Parkin Syndrome, which is very similar to Parkinson's disease. You are an asswipe, for making fun of someone like that. Go die.
  • People's Champ
    Guess Depp is a idiot. Whats so prestigious about playing Ozzy? I just wanna see the Black Sabbath stuff, I could care less about the solo stuff or the reality show.
  • Mega Jet Jaguar
    Ozzy's got a new album coming out soon, for anyone who is interested. I personally can't wait.
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    @ People's Champ You probably listen to Justin Beiber don't you? Hannah Montana? Jonas Brothers?
  • @ Peace Love & GaGa. All the drugs and alcohol had nothing to do with his vegetive state? I really he had killed Sharon, then there would've been no MTV show and less muppets like you.
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    @ Crapola "I really he had killed Sharon"? Learn to write in English.
  • ha ha.
  • Hellfudge
    @Peace Love Gay Gay I listen to more harder music than your stupid ass. Go fuck yourself.
  • Peace Love & GaGa
    @ Hellfudge You don't even know me you stupid fuck! I listen to deathcore and death metal for your information. I listen to Bring Me the Horizon, Suicide Silence, Mustache, Cannibal Corpse and all other bands along those lines you fuckin RETARD! You have probably never even heard of those and you probably think justin beiber and the jonas bros are harder cause they make you hard when you watch them. GO FUCK YOURSELF BITCH!
