Did you know we are getting a new biopic about Ozzy Osbourne? Well, to be more specific, we are getting a biopic about the relationship between Ozzy and that of his wife Sharon Osbourne.

The film will focus on their relationship from 1979 to 1996, and the film’s treatment was written up by their daughter Aimee. And as reported by Consequence as of recently, when it comes to this upcoming movie, Ozzy has one request in mind (and it has to do with who plays him).

The film will apparently explore some real intense times during the couple’s lives, covering such topics as Ozzy’s past addiction struggles for example. Ozzy is asked if there is any hesitancy to have certain parts of his life shown on screen, to which he shares the following: “I don’t give a shit. I mean, if it’s a success, great. As long as it’s not too slurpy and bullshit-y, you know?”

That said, there is one matter Ozzy does care about regarding this film. While he is cool with his life being shown on screen, he does care about who portrays him. The Black Sabbath legend does not want some famous actor playing him. In speaking to this matter, Ozzy specifically calls out an actor who he does not want to portray him.

“I don’t want to have anyone like Johnny Depp act as me. I rather have someone who is relatively unknown.”

No famous actors playing Ozzy then! With this in mind, it will be very interesting to see who is picked out to play that of Ozzy Osbourne. Will you be watching this biopic when it is released?

Per a past reporting of this film, via Consequence, Sharon said that she does not want her and Ozzy’s movie to be anything like that of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie that had just came out – for she considers the Queen film to be a “Hallmark movie.”

Per Sharon: “Our film will be a lot more real. We don’t want it to be squeaky, shiny clean and all of that. We’re not making it for kids. It’s an adult movie for adults.”
