Ozzy Osbourne's music has most likely inspired - or helped inspire - many a horror film director, so it's only fitting that his son is gearing up to direct a scary feature of his own. Not only that, but its working title is none other than BLACK SABBATH!

According to ContactMusic.com, Osbourne is developing a horror movie around the songs that made the heavy metal group famous.

To clarify, Marc Weingarten, Osbourne's producing partner on the project, said: "Just the music of Black Sabbath is in the movie, but it's not about the band. We'll start shooting by the end of the year."

Unfortunately, he didn't divulge any plot details, so I guess your guess is as good as mine as to the content. (I'm assuming "Iron Man" is out.) Both Jack Osbourne and Mark Weingarten acted as co-producers GOD BLESS OZZY OSBOURNE; it just premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last night.

Extra Tidbit: The name "Black Sabbath" was evidently inspired by the movie of the same name starring Boris Karloff and directed by Mario Bava.

On one hand, Jack Osbourne has never directed before. Will he be the next Rob Zombie? (Yes, I phrased that question purposefully ambiguously) However, regardless of director, "War Pigs" and "Paranoid" are songs needing cinematic interpretation. We fans all carry interpretations of those two in our minds' imaginations. Imagine being high at the theatre and taking part in the Black Sabbath (dble-meaning intended) on-screen.
