Quirky superstar Johnny Depp is so "fascinated" by Ozzy Osbourne he's desperate to play the wild rocker in a biopic.

Johnny is currently starring in blockbuster Pirates Of The Caribbean: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL, in which he based his character CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW on the Rolling Stones's legendary guitarist Keith Richards.

Now he wants to play a rocker for real in the new movie of Ozzy's raucous life, which is currently being developed by the former Black Sabbath frontman's wife SHARON.

Depp explains, "He's a deeply fascinating human being."
