AC/DC: Two Bon Scott film projects due in 2015

Two film projects focusing on the life and times of late AC/DC singer Bon Scott are due in 2015.

Billboard reports executive producer Shemori BoShae (American Federale) is heading up a documentary and a biopic about the legendary singer, who died in 1980 at the age of 33 after a night of heavy drinking in London.

The documentary, “Looking For Bon”, will explore Scott’s life prior to his joining AC/DC. The project will be narrated by David O’Hara, who has previously appeared in The Tudors and The Departed.

“The purpose of the documentary is to chronicle what was a very creative period for Bon from 1970 to 1974,” explains BoShae, “and give the viewer an insight into a very creative period of Bon’s life and to enlighten all on just how great a singer he was before he joined ACDC.”

The documentary will be followed by a biopic with a script written by late Australian music pioneer Vince Lovegrove (who shared vocals with Scott in the Valentines in the '60s) and Angela Anagnostopoulos, focusing on his years in AC/DC.

Scott was AC/DC’s vocalist from 1974 until his death in 1980. He recorded six albums with the band – from 1975’s “High Voltage” to 1979’s “Highway To Hell.”
