The Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne biopic that has been rumoured is now a reality. The film doesn't had a title as yet but it will look into the relationship between the Prince of Darkness and his longtime wife and manager - Sharon Osbourne. Sharon helped Ozzy throughout his career helping him launch his successful solo career and helped launch the Ozzfest tour festival. In the early 2000s she became a well known celebrity from the hugely successful MTV reality TV series The Osbournes.
Sharon Osbourne said in a statement â€œOur relationship at times was often wild, insane and dangerous, but it was our undying love that kept us together. Weâ€™re thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures and PolyGram to bring our story to the screen.â€

In the video for Ozzy's 2019 single 'Under the Graveyard' it depicts Sharon attempting to help Ozzy get back on his feet after he was fired from Black Sabbath. This has given a little clue to the direction the new biopic will go. Jack Osbourne says "We are striving to make it gritty, real. Weâ€™re certainly going to do our best to do it justice."
Sharon and her children Jack and Aimee Osbourne are working as producers via their Osbourne Media Label. Previously Jack Osbourne has produced the God Bless Ozzy Osbourne documentary, the Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne documentary and the non Ozzy Osbourne series - Alpha Dogs on NetGeo.
The film is going to be as true as it can be, Sharon said â€œPeople are going to watch it and go, â€˜This isnâ€™t allowed. They shouldn't behave that way and put it on film,'" Sharon tells Daily Mail. She continued â€œBut [we're] only talking the truth. Some people have volatile relationships and ours was very volatile. You grow to a stage where it sickens you. You grow to a stage where it physically makes you sick â€¦ but when you're young and, you know, you're fighting the world, it's different."
Polygram is the film and television part of Universal Music Group. Other works they have worked on are â€œThe Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart?â€ from director Frank Marshall, and acclaimed docs about The Go-Goâ€™s and the Beastie Boys. â€œThe Velvet Undergroundâ€ feature documentary from Todd Haynes, and a KISS biopic from director Joachim Ronning.
