More details have been announced about the upcoming Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne biopic.

According to Variety, the film will be produced Polygram Entertainment in partnership with Osbourne Media, the company of Ozzy and Sharon’s children Jack and Aimee. Sony Pictures is also handling development.

Meanwhile, the film’s script will be written by Oscar-nominee Lee Hall, who previously penned the 2019 Elton John biopic, Rocketman.

As previously reported, the movie is set to focus on the lives of the heavy metal couple through the lens of their relationship. Variety reports that it will include music from Black Sabbath and Ozzy’s solo career.

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

In a Rolling Stone article published last summer, Sharon said she wanted the film to feel different from the 2018 Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, which she called a “Hallmark rock movie.”

“Our film will be a lot more real,” Sharon said. “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.”
