Bon Scott To Be Played By Rob Liotti In Biopic

Rob Liotti has been cast in the role of the late Bon Scott, former fronter for AC/DC in the new biopic, Bon Scott - the Legend of AC/DC. For Liotti, who shares writing credits on the flick, it's his first major role.

The film, from first time helmer J.R. Getches, began pre-production in Charleston, South Carolina early last week.

"The Bon Scott movie has got legs!" said Russell Cotter of High Voltage Productions Pty.

"Rob has worked tirelessly to get the movie off the ground and it has traction. More than 30 years after the death of AC/DC's legendary frontman, Rob, has promoted the legacy of Bon Scott, the man, and has been able to pull together the story, the people, and the logistics of what will soon, become a landmark movie. Fans around the world will finally get to see what they have long waited for."
