Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne will have their life stories immortalised in film, as their relationship is set to be the subject of a new movie adaptation.

Rock musician Ozzy and his wife and manager Sharon will have their eventful lives portrayed on screen in the untitled film, which will reportedly follow a biopic format and centre on the bond that has kept the couple close for so many years.

Variety reports that the movie will be written by prolific screenwriter Lee Hall, who was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for his script to 2000 musical Billy Elliot. He has also written Elton John biopic Rocketman and Steven Spielberg's epic period drama War Horse.

Speaking about the movie announcement, Sharon 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."

Sharon will produce the movie alongside her children Jack and Aimée Osbourne under their Osbourne Media label, which has previously been behind documentary God Bless Ozzy Osbourne and documentary series Alpha Dogs.

Ozzy's music is expected to play a significant role in the film, with the soundtrack set to feature tunes by Ozzy's band Black Sabbath and his solo music.

Sharon has shared her excitement about the movie on Instagram, posting a screenshot of an article about the movie and writing: "and so it begins….."
