The New Ozzy Osbourne Biopic Movie Is Promised To Be Far More In Your Face Than The Box Office Smash Bohemian Rhapsody
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were quoted as saying, ‘We’re Not Making It for Kids’
“We don’t want it to be squeaky, shiny clean and all of that, it’s an adult movie for adults”
“Bohemian Rhapsody was a Hallmark rock movie, it was squeaky clean. It turned a whole generation onto Queen’s music that had never heard before. So with that it was phenomenal. But I don’t think it was a great movie. They changed the timing of the story and everything in it.” – Sharon Osbourne
There are currently few details about the Ozzy Osbourne movie, which was first announced two years ago. Jack Osbourne, whose company is producing the film, has disclosed little information, other than it’s in “active development” and his writer was been hired to create a script that takes place between 1979 and 1996.
“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.” – Ozzy Osbourne
Sharon Osbourne expects the film will be vastly different from other recent Hollywood productions, like Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman.
“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 Osbourne
Sharon went on to say “I would get a complete unknown” to play Ozzy. “It’s Ozzy at a very young age,” she said.
“Our film will be a lot more real, 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.” – Said Sharon
As many await more info on completion of the new Ozzy Osbourne movie, fans also look forward to A&E‘s highly-anticipated Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne documentary is due out September 7th.
