Ozzy Osbourne Rumored To Appear In New Ghostbusters Movie

A few weeks back it was announced metal fans were being recruited for a concert scene in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, and now rumors are circulating that Ozzy Osbourne will appear in the flick. The Boston Herald had this to say:

“So rumor from the ‘Ghostbusters’ set is that the Prince of Darkness himself, Ozzy Osbourne, was the headliner at the heavy-metal concert scene director Paul Feig shot all last week at the Citi Wang Theatre.

“Our spy on the scene overheard a couple of crew members talking about the Black Sabbath frontman outside the theater where Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones were working.

“And posters outside the theater advertised a ‘Rock Revenge Fest featuring Ozzy Osbourne’ as part of a ’12 Hour Marathon of Metal.'”

This upcoming reboot of the classic franchise is being directed by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Office, Nurse Jackie) and stars Mellisa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.
