Not one to rest on his laurels, Ozzy Osbourne
will be keeping busy after the completion of the Ozzfest this summer. Aside
from a new solo album that will be release next year, Ozzy has began work
on a film project of his life which will hit the big screen next year.
The screenplay was written by Ozzy and
he has hired an unknown British actor to play the lead role. This will
not be a complete story of Ozzy's life and times, it will begin at the
point in his life where he was fired from Black Sabbath and met his wife
According to Ozzy's wife/manager Sharon
Osbourne don't expect a movie like The Doors. "If you can imagine Rocky,
that's what Ozzy is. I liken Ozzy to Rocky a lot and that's what the movie
is like. It's not what you'd expect at all. It's not your typical rock
n' roll, sex 'n' drugs. I think it's going to surprise a lot of people.
He's not a character like a Sting or a Mick Jagger, where you all know
the story. What you see is what you get. There is no other side to these
people. And nobody knows Ozzy. Nobody knows the real Ozzy or the fight
that Ozzy has had during his life. He's a very quiet person. He keeps to
himself and no one knows the whole story. It's a very interesting story.
It's going to start as he gets fired from Black Sabbath. There will be
no historical footage. Ozzy's is writing the screenplay with an unknown
English writer that Ozzy's worked with." states Mrs. Osbourne.
We will keep you updated on this story
as it develops.
