Johnny Depp to play Ozzy?

Johnny Depp is reportedly in talks to play Ozzy Osbourne in a film about his life.

Sharon Osbourne told Kerrang! magazine that nothing was 100% certain.

But she said Ozzy was talking to the Pirates of the Carribean star about the role.

Ironically, Depp based his role as Captain Jack Sparrow on another aging rocker - Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

Sharon also hinted that Ozzy, who was badly hurt in a quad bike accident before Christmas, might retire in a couple of years.
