Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne‘s epic love story is getting the movie treatment. On Thursday, Variety revealed that the iconic rock ‘n’ roll couple’s relationship is the subject of a brand-new feature film that’s set to be released by Sony Pictures.
The project — which comes courtesy of Polygram Entertainment — does not have an official title yet. The movie will take on a biopic format that will follow the Osbournes’ nearly 40 years of marriage that fans got a peek of while starring on The Osbournes, their reality television show that ran on MTV between 2002 and 2005. Oscar nominee Lee Hall, who is known for his work on Cats, Rocketman, Billy Elliot and more, is scripting the project.
“Our relationship at times was often wild, insane and dangerous but it was our undying love that kept us together,” Sharon told Variety. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures and Polygram to bring our story to the screen.”
The untitled biopic is a family affair: Sharon and children Jack and Aimée Osbourne are producing the film under their label Osbourne Media alongside Michele Anthony and David Blackman from Polygram Entertainment. Jack Osbourne most recently executive-produced The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne, which premiered on the A+E network in 2020. Music is also essential to the biopic and will naturally feature loved songs from Black Sabbath’s discography in addition to tracks from Ozzy’s solo career.
Following the announcement, Sharon and Ozzy posted the news to their respective Instagram accounts. “And so it begins….. @sonypictures,” Sharon captioned her post, adding a film camera emoji. See the couple’s posts below.
