Screen Australia, the federal development and film-funding organization, has given support to develop a rock biopic drawing on the life of late AC/DC singer Bon Scott.
"Bon Scott" will be directed by Eddie Martin and produced by Lizzette Atkins, who worked together on another biopic, the feature-length documentary "Lionel" about a boxer. Stephen Cleary is script editing.
Melbourne rock singer Nick Barker recently played Bon Scott in a theatrical production about the AC/DC frontman's life.
Bon Scott died on February 19, 1980 in London, England. He choked to death on his own vomit while sleeping in a friend's car. According to the AC/DC FAQ web site, he and the friend, a musician named Alisdair Kinnear, had been drinking the evening of the 19th and Bon apparently fell asleep during the ride home. Kinnear could not wake Bon, so he left him in the car to sleep. Kinnear awoke early in the evening on the 20th, checked on Bon, and found him unconscious in the car. Bon could not be revived, and was pronounced dead.
