Following the success of Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody and Elton John biopic Rocketman, Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is getting the film treatment too. The biopic will focus on his relationship with wife Sharon Osbourne. And in a new interview, she revealed how the film will be far from the “squeaky clean” Freddie Mercury movie Bohemian Rhapsody.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Sharon called the Queen biopic “a Hallmark rock movie”.

The 67-year-old said: “I get why they did that, because it was for a younger generation.

“It was squeaky clean. It was, ‘Those songs will live forever,’ and it turned a whole generation onto Queen’s music that had never heard before.

“So with that, it was phenomenal.”

But despite the success, Queen drummer Roger Taylor told Express.co.uk he can’t see a sequel happening anytime soon.

Bohemian Rhapsody ended with Queen’s iconic Live Aid performance in 1985.

With six years left before Freddie Mercury’s death, there’s more of a story to tell if Roger Taylor and Brian May were up for it.

But the Queen drummer told us: “Right now it’s not something I’d like to see. I don’t think it’s particularly a good idea.”

Taylor added: “Just because something’s been successful, I don’t think one should necessarily have part two.

“I think that only really worked once and that was with The Godfather!

“I don’t see a great story there. I think we told the really good story and I wouldn’t like to be thought of, of just putting something out to sort of cash in.

“So right now, no.”
