Osbourne has been working on movie screenplays and comic books for the American market (among them, Jenna with Jim Fern and Joe Rubinstein, and with the original score by Iron Maiden’s Paul Di Anno), articles for Cinema magazines and pitches for movie projects together with Brian Yuzna. Osbourne’s books are published in several countries (Italy, France, Turkey, the U.S., Germany, Russia and Brazil, among others).
