Ozzy Osbourne: The movie
Ozzy Osbourne's life is going to be made into a film.
A movie based on the legendary Black Sabbath frontman and solo artist's colourful life has been given the go-ahead by studio executives according to his wife, Sharon.
She said: "There's about to be a big announcement. It's been picked up and it's going into production. There's no cast yet, but we have a producer and we have lots of money and we're all starting."
She added that the person to play her husband - who released his autobiography, titled 'I Am Ozzy' last year - will be "somebody new" rather than an established star.
Sharon, who has been Ozzy's manager since his split from Black Sabbath in 1979, said she would choose English actress Carey Mulligan to play her if she could pick anyone, although she also earmarked her daughter, Kelly, as ideal for the role.
When asked about the possibility of casting Kelly, she replied: "To play me? She is a Mini Me, so yeah, she would be good."
Summing up his life in rock 'n' roll upon the release of his biography, Ozzy said: "They've said some crazy things about me over the years. I mean, ok: 'He bit the head off a bat.' Yes. 'He bit the head off a dove.' Yes,
"I took lethal combinations of booze and drugs for thirty fing years. I survived a direct hit by a plane, suicidal overdoses, STDs. I've been accused of attempted murder. Then I almost died while riding over a bump on a quad bike at fing two miles per hour."Posted on 27 Apr 2010 10:00 to category : Band / Celebrity News
