We might have an opportunity to watch two movies about the life of Sharon Osbourne in the near future. After reports started circling that Universal is working on a movie about Osbourne, the 66-year-old TV personality and businesswoman decided to start working on her own project.
“Somebody told me it was a script on the Black List so I looked at it and I’m like, ‘What a load of crap,'” Osbourne told Variety. “It didn’t make sense. It didn’t have a heart. It just wasn’t me.”
Sharon Osbourne said that she wants to do a movie based on her life which would center on her childhood, growing up, and early life with her husband, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne.
“I don’t want to do another rock and roll, sex, drugs and money movie about a musician,” she added. “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.”
Osbourne ended up revealing more information about the project, including the fact that she approached Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle to helm the film. When it comes to casting, she shared that she already has an actress in mind to play her, but that “it’s too early to say.” Ozzy, on the other hand, will be played by “a complete unknown.”
