SHARON OSBOURNE: Cancer-Free, Working On Talk Show, OZZY Biopic

Sharon Osbourne has been declared cancer-free and is working on the launch of her syndicated one-hour talk show, "The Sharon Osbourne Show", which is slated to hit the small screen this fall. In addition, Sharon and Ozzy are in negotiations with Paramount Pictures and MTV Films to bring Ozzy's life story to the movies.

The film is expected to tell the tale of the singer's rise from humble beginnings to stardom in BLACK SABBATH, his solo success, his struggles with drugs and alcohol, and his reinvention as a cuddly, cussin' patriarch of "The Osbournes", according to MTV.com. Spokespeople for the Osbournes and MTV Films said talks are in the early stages, with no writer, director or actors approached yet. Last October, Sharon told the Hollywood Reporter that she hoped she could hire Johnny Depp to play Ozzy. "I have a dream of who it could be, but I don't know if he'll do it," she said. "He's a brilliant actor."
