Bon Scott & Michael Hutchence Biopics Receive Government Funding

Written by John Ritchie on July 28, 2011

The Government has agreed to fund a biopic of former AC/DC frontman Bon Scott. Eddie Martin and Lizzette Atkins have been working on the project since 2008 and Screen Australia have now offered the financial support they need to get it off the ground.

Bon Scott was the frontman of AC/DC for 6 years and died in London in 1980 of “acute alcohol poisoning” , He was 33.

The Government is also funding another biopic featuring INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

It’s great to see the government spending some tax dollars honouring the lives of some Aussie rock n roll legends.
