AC/DC Bon Scott Film Close To Becoming A Reality

Written by Marc Zanotti on May 24, 2013

A biopic based on the life of former AC/DC frontman Bon Scott has taken one step closer to becoming a reality. The “docu-drama” Bon Scott: The Legend of AC/DC is being spearheaded by High Voltage Productions, who will reportedly soon begin talks with “one of the world’s leading production and entertainment companies”.

A quick squizz at the ever-reliable IMDB has Bon Scott: The Legend of AC/DC slated for release some time next year. Playing the role of Bon Scott is Rob Liotti, an American actor and singer that has apparently performed for years as Bon Scott onstage and is credited as being the films writer.

According to the film’s official website, the movie will focus on a pivotal time in AC/DC’s history when Scott helped the Australian band achieve worldwide success. But while AC/DC reach new levels of fame and fortune, Scott will be tortured by feelings of isolation and loneliness.

AC/DC recently gave their support to a fan initiative to build a memorial statue in honour of Bon Scott. Fans began a Kickstarter campaign to build the tribute and erect it in Kirriemuir, Scotland.

The campaign has 12 days left and has currently raised less than half of its pledge goal of £50,000 ($AU76,960.00) – head on over if you want to give a few bucks.
