Sharon Osbourne has made no bones about being the driving force behind her husband’s career, launching the wildly successful Ozzfest music festival, managing his musical career, and handling his merchandising and concert schedule. And then there is the fact she has stayed with a man who has more-than tested their relationship at various points throughout their lives together.
Now she is working on a number of further Ozzy-related projects, including penning a book about “infidelity and what it does to people,” and a film about those heady days when Ozzy was wooing her.
She tells Variety: “It starts the day we meet and will focus on how our lives were totally different but very similar in ways: I was brought up by a powerful, successful father, — the late, famously tough Black Sabbath/Small Faces/ELO manager Don Arden — and Ozzy was brought up extremely poor and somewhat abused.
“It’s definitely going to be a tearjerker. It’s not going to be a sex-and-drugs movie at all. Ozzy is so much more than that. I would hate to be a cliché.”
So far the movie hasn’t been sold, but we sincerely doubt too many studios will pass up the opportunity to create this.
One suggestion though: I’d love this to be a ten-part Netflix series rather than a film.
