OZZY BIOPIC 'ABSOLUTELY' IN THE WORKS

Ozzy Osbourne 's son   Jack   has confirmed that a biopic about his father's early solo career and the singer's life with   Sharon Osbourne   is in the works. "There is absolutely things in motion right now to make that a reality,"   Jack   said during an appearance on   "The Jasta Show"   (see video below). "I think in the next few months, you'll probably see something coming up about it. But we haven't landed [at a studio] yet. So, fingers crossed."

Asked who will play him in the movie,   Jack   said: "I think the time period I would do it in, I would be a child in it. So I wouldn't be so heavily featured. It's gonna be more about my mom and dad making their way through the world. I would be in the background just being annoying."

Jack   also talked about the upcoming   "Biography: The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne"   documentary, which will premiere this summer. The film, which   A&E   produced as part of its   "Biography"   series, celebrates   Ozzy 's life and features interviews with   Sharon ,   Rick Rubin ,   Ice-T ,   Marilyn Manson ,   Rob Zombie ,   Jonathan Davis   and   Post Malone .   Ozzy ,   Sharon   and   Jack   executive produced the picture, which former   "Osbournes"   producer   R. Greg Johnston   directed.

"It's fucking awesome,"   Jack   said. "As much as I love [the 2011 documentary]   'God Bless Ozzy [Osbourne]' , this is   so much   better… I think this does a better job of kind of cramming in his entire life in a two-hour film. We start from childhood and we go all the way up to his recent Parkinson's diagnosis. So it's all in there."

Back in January 2019,   Sharon   told   Variety   that she was developing a biopic about her childhood and early days with   Ozzy .

"I don't want to do another rock and roll, sex, drugs and money movie about a musician,"   Sharon   said. "That's not what I'm doing. There hasn't been a movie about a woman that actually works on the management side — that's a true story — and somebody that succeeds through the struggle and you come out the other side."

Sharon   had approached   Danny Boyle   ( "28 Days Later" ,   "Sunshine" ,   "Trainspotting" ) about directing the film, which will end when she and   Ozzy   get married in 1982. "It's everything before we get married," she said. "It's the madness of my childhood, growing up in the industry with a powerful father who was somewhat violent."

Sharon   went on to say that she "would get a complete unknown" to play   Ozzy . "It's   Ozzy   at a very young age," she explained. "It's   Ozzy   at 20."

Sharon 's father, former music mogul   Don Arden , became known as the " Al Capone   of pop" and the "English Godfather" for his tough-guy business practices while overseeing the careers of acts ranging from   ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA   to   BLACK SABBATH .   Arden   and his daughter became estranged in 1982 after she took over the management of   Ozzy 's solo career, also marrying the singer. Father and daughter were not on good terms for nearly 20 years until reconciling in 2002.

Sharon   had to pay her father $1 million in a court settlement after she gained control of   Ozzy 's affairs.
