Tony Iommi reveals a Black Sabbath biopic in his latest interview

The band’s legendary guitarist Tony Iommi talks about the former possibility of a Black Sabbath biopic, says it was talked about before the pandemic.

During an interview with Spin, Tony Iommi talked about his band’s old days, his meeting with Dio, his recent life with guitar, and so on. Iommi also mentioned a Black Sabbath biopic, said it was being talked about before the pandemic kicked in. It seems the popular guitarist does not have any idea what is going on with it right now.

The interviewer said Iommi was great pals with Brian May and mentioned the success of the Bohemian Rhapsody movie. When Iommi was asked about a Sabbath movie, he said there was talk of it. It looks like the pandemic affected this movie as well, along with almost every big production.

“Yes, there was talk of it, and I don’t know what happened. It sort of went out the window when all this thing started. But we were talking about it probably 18 months ago, about doing the biopic. I haven’t heard much else.”

As Black Sabbath is a band that went through so much, with all the drama between its members and the different eras it has been in, a biopic sounds like a very brilliant idea for it would not be short of content. Unfortunately, though, everything about it faded away with the start of the pandemic, and it does not seem likely to be produced soon.

When Iommi was asked about his first meeting with Dio, he said that he thought Dio was an excellent singer earlier. Iommi did not apparently think that he was going to play with him, though.

“I’ve never met him before. I’d obviously heard him with Rainbow. I thought, ‘wow, God, he’s a  great singer.’ Never thought for one minute I’d end up being in a band with him.”
