The Ozzman cometh! The Ozzy Osbourne biopic has been picked up

04.27.2010

The prince of darkness is ready for his close-up.

Sharon Osbourne revealed in an interview that the biopic on her husband, Ozzy Osbourne has been picked up, "There's about to be a big announcement. 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."

At one point, what seemed like many ages ago, there was supposed to be a biopic based on the Mötley Crüe autobiography, "The Dirt". The film would center on the debauchery of the band, and would include other rock icons like David Lee Roth and Ozzy Osbourne. Christopher Walken was rumored at one point to play Osbourne and Val Kilmer would play Roth. Again, these are all rumors, but they are interesting ones. The project eventually just disappeared from the radar never to be heard from again.

While a Crüe biopic would have been f*cking awesome, I'm cool with one for Ozzy.

Sharon said that someone new would play her husband, but who would she pick to fill her shoes, "The girl from 'An Education,' the English girl Carey Mulligan." Then it was mentioned that perhaps her daughter Kelly should play her, "To play me? She is a Mini Me, so yeah, she would be good."

Nice

Bout time this happened. Ozzy had a great career with tons of highs and lows. If this were 10 years ago i'd say Jonny Depp for Ozzy.

Mötley Crüe suck, lol. They've even said that Ozzy outdid their craziness on a nightly basis while they toured together. Hell this was the time in his career when he got banned from Texas for pissing on the Alamo.

The idea that this film will focus on the last 10 years of his career as opposed the 30 years that preceded is hilarious. Get over the hate and

I'm a huge Ozzy fan, but...

I could really care less about this movie. Sharon will fnck it up somehow by getting in the way too much, and senile old Ozzy will let her. You watch, I guarantee it.

Eddie Izzard could be interesting, but it all depends on the age they go for.

Oh god, how one of the most annoying rock stars of all time became an utter embarrassment. The anti-christ turned in to Billy Cosby with a mental retardation. That will be some kind of good movie.

But seriously, most music bio-pics suck, so this likely will.

That shot of Ozzy looks like Patton Oswalt in a wig. I'm sure Patton can sing but can he snort a line of ants convincingly?

I don't understand all the hate for this below. Ozzy is the man and one heck of an entertaining dude. He's lived a crazy crazy life as a rockstar. Also the Osbornes is one of the best reality tv shows ever. I'm all for this!! Need a "cast this" soon.

See Anvil: The Story of Anvil

The Anvil documentary is way better than this could be.

As much as I love Ozzy, ESPECIALLY the Black Sabbath years, this is an awful, awful idea. The last 10-12 years of his career have been a reality show ridden mess. Fuck this idea and fuck Sharon, I know this is her fault.
