British heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne is reportedly in talks with several studios, to discuss turning his recent autobiography, "I Am Ozzy" into a feature length movie. At the moment, no further information is available but the film could well be snapped up as in the past, biopics on legendary musicans such as Ray Charles, Johnny Cash and most recently Ian Dury, have proven to be big successes.

The only news I want to hear from Ozzy is the Ozzfest lineup so I can decide if I'm going or not.

Words cannot express my hatred for Russel Brand. They really can't.

There's not gonna be an Ozzfest this year guys. Ozzy said so last year because he's working on the new album.

This movie would have to be all subtitled to understand anything...and what actor could possibly talk like that without getting beat by a metal bat or doing insane amounts of drugs in a short time?

There's allegedly going to be an Ozzfest this year, but it's mid March and absolutely no news. Just speculation. This movie's probably going to suck anyway.

I can't paste any links in here, but just search on YouTube and you'll see what I mean :)

An Ozzy Osbourne movie will be great. It's come across my mind a few times. I enjoyed Ozzy when he worked along side Gene Simmons in Trick or Treat. It's one of my favorite Horror movies!

I think Johnny Depp would actually be able to pull of Ozzy quite well. He did Hunter S. Thompson who was also quite jacked out on drugs.

^ If Depp is willing to put on 100 pounds... To me, Brendan Frazer looks more like Ozzy than Johnny.

I don't care about crazy old Ozzy anymore, but it must be said that this should be interesting watching, depending on who'll direct it of course

As if Ozzy couldn't be any bigger, more screwed up, commercially gratifying to teens these days that think "black Rain" is the icon of awesome metal, and then they say a movie???? Let's milk it a little more shall we? Maybe they should do a three part series. Black Sabbath when he was cool, after Ozzy left BS, and drugged himself into 2IQ points. Better yet, laet's make a Disney classic out of it! Yeah, let's do that!
