Sharon Osbourne Working On Movie About Her Early Courtship With Ozzy Osbourne

During an interview with Variety, Sharon Osbourne revealed that she is working on various projects including a new film focused on her early courtship with her husband Ozzy Osbourne. She said the following about the movie, which is still being scripted:

““It starts the day we meet and will focus on how our lives were totally different but very similar in ways: I was brought up by a powerful, successful father ­— the late, famously tough Black Sabbath/Small Faces/ELO manager Don Arden — and Ozzy was brought up extremely poor and somewhat abused. It’s definitely going to be a tearjerker. It’s not going to be a sex-and-drugs movie at all. Ozzy is so much more than that. I would hate to be a cliché.”

Aside from this, she is also looking for a publisher for a new book she is working on about “infidelity and what it does to people.”

Here’s a film synopsis:

Welcome to the world of the Sunset Society, a secret organization in Hollywood where parties are held, musicians gather and blood flows freely! Ace (Lemmy from “Motorhead”) is the head vampire in charge who likes to keep the fun going while keeping the profile low. However, due to a few rebels in his midst, humans are starting to catch on to his vampire ways.

In an attempt to keep a lid on his organization, Ace enlists the help of Frankie (Ron Jeremy), Sophia (Phoebe Dollar), and Mr. Cross (Robert Donavan) to stop the leak of information. An innocent woman is turned into a vampire without permission and she is starting to cause problems. A streetwalker has recorded a DVD of real vampire activity on the Sunset Strip and is now selling the disc on the street to the highest bidder. And Dagger, a disgruntled vampire, wants to try to live as a human again no matter what the cost.

Everyone is now in danger as passions get out of control, bodies are invaded and loyalties are put to the limit.

Between blood orgies and magic spells, Ace has his hands full but can even he stop the secret of his underground society from getting out to the public at large and who will survive the wrath of the unknown vengeful stranger now stalking all the vampires for revenge?! Nobody is quite what they seem when the sun goes down in this land of dreams and nightmares.

SUNSET SOCIETY – is a fresh take on the vampire lore. Loaded with rocking songs, sexy girls, and Lemmy’s final starring performance, get ready for a horrific and bloody adventure where music, animation, and legends come together and live forever!

Rob Zombie Plans To Start Editing “3 From Hell” In The Fall

Rob Zombie has officially finished shooting his “The Devil’s Rejects” sequel “3 From Hell.” The singer is planning to start editing the movie in the fall, following his tour with Marilyn Manson. Zombie told Eddie Trunk the following about the film on “Trunk Nation”:

“It’s the third part of my sort of trilogy that started with ‘House Of 1,000 Corpses’, then it was ‘The Devil’s Rejects’ and now it’s this movie called ‘3 From Hell’. It’s the third part of that series.”

He added:

“We’re done shooting it. I finished about two weeks ago. And, basically, the process just stops and waits for me. ‘Cause the film will just basically sit and wait till I get back from tour, which is the end of August, maybe… I don’t remember when [‘The Second Coming’] tour [with Marilyn Manson] ends… beginning of September. And then we’ll start editing. And that’ll take me through the rest of the year.”
