Well, AC/DC fans worldwide seem to be moving one step closer to a film paying hommage to their late Australian rock hero, Bon Scott. In fact, it looks more like a giant leap forward.
Key production team members from High Voltage Productions Pty., the current controlling production company overseeing Bon Scott - The Legend Of AC/DC, are slated to engage in talks this week with one of the world's leading production and entertainment companies said a source close to the project. The highly-publicised film project is a docudrama chronicling the career of late Aussie frontman, Bon Scott, of AC/DC who died tragically at age 33 in 1980 after only six years with the band.
Starring in the film is American singer/actor, Rob Liotti, who is also the credited screenwriter. Liotti is no stranger to things AC/DC as he has performed on stage as Bon Scott for many years. And although this is his first lead feature film role, it has been made apparent that he is a natural for the role. Also on board the High Voltage team is director J. R. Getches who brings a great deal of vision and television experience. The production company also recently announced the addition of producer Michael Meltzer to its team who is no stranger to Hollywood and is well-respected in entertainment circles. Also brought on board was entertainment lawyer, Rhett Klok, who advises on business affairs.
The source would not reveal the production company's name or the parties involved but the production company's contacts have been verified prior to this article's publication.
