Variety obtained exclusive information about the movie, which will apparently span several decades. Polygram Entertainment is set to produce it, along with Sharon and her kids, Jack and Aimée, via Osbourne Media. However, we don’t currently know what the film’s title is. We do know Oscar nominee Lee Hall is scripting it though, and that it will be in a biopic format. As for the subject matter, it will detail Ozzy and Sharon’s entire relationship, including their professional careers and things like their MTV reality series The Osbournes.
Speaking to Variety, Sharon gives a little teaser about the premise. “Our relationship at times was often wild, insane and dangerous but it was our undying love that kept us together,” said Sharon Osbourne. “We’re thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures and Polygram to bring our story to the screen.”
If you’re hoping for Black Sabbath music in the film, you’re in luck. Not only will several of their songs play, but some of Ozzy’s solo projects will be present as well. Unfortunately, news is scarce on the film at the moment and we don’t have a release window.
Sharon Osbourne Speaks Out Against Former ‘The Talk’ Showrunners
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne’s new film is bound to have fun and drama, though Sharon may have had her fill with the latter this year already. In an interview earlier this month, she spoke out against her former The Talk showrunners and the controversy with the show.
Speaking with Megyn Kelly on her Sirius XM program, Sharon recounted the drama she faced when leaving The Talk. As a quick recap, CBS said Sharon’s behavior “did not align” with their values after a controversial conversation during the show. Osbourne defended her friend, Piers Morgan, over comments made about the royal family. The company also accused her of racist and homophobic comments, which she denied.
In the interview, Osbourne specifically mentioned showrunners Heather Gray and Kristin Matthews. “They were friends of mine, especially Kristin Matthews. And I told them that they’ve destroyed me. I told them I will never be able to get over this. It’s like, once you have that seed put on you, that you are a racist, it never goes away. I told them they destroyed me.”
Additionally, she called out Elaine Welteroth and Sheryl Underwood for essentially enabling the showrunners to kick her out.
“I think that the showrunners were doing what Amy had told them to do. Weak, weak women, that didn’t have a backbone to turn around and say, ‘This is suicidal. We can’t do this.’ And to let it go after the break, so it was 20 minutes on national TV of bashing me. Twenty minutes … They just – it blindsided me.”
Overall, Osbourne seems to blame the showrunners more than anything, though it appears quite a few people played a part in her leaving The Talk.
