The long-in-the-works Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne biopic took an important step forward being picked up by Sony Pictures.

Per Variety, “The untitled project comes from Polygram Entertainment, and will follow a biopic format centering on their decades-long bond — one that exploded to the heights of pop culture with the flagship MTV reality series ‘The Osbournes.’ Oscar nominee Lee Hall (‘Billy Elliot’) is scripting the project.”

Additionally, Sharon will have a producing role on the film along with her children Jack and Aimee Osbourne via Jack’s production company Osbourne Media.

In a statement, Sharon Osbourne said, “Our relationship at times was often wild, insane and dangerous but it was our undying love that kept us together. We’re thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures and Polygram to bring our story to the screen.”

Talk of Ozzy and Sharon's biopic first surfaced in July 2018 in an interview Sharon gave to Variety. At that time, Sharon said of the film, “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.”
