For those of you about to rock, or for those of you who stopped rocking once Brian Johnson replaced Bon Scott in AC/DC, good news: film maker Eddie Martin is working on a flick about the original AC/DC frontman Bon Scott. Martin told the Aussie site Undercover he's been, "working heavily on it for a couple of months" but is still in the writing process. Scott who died of alcohol consumption in 1980 shortly after recording the bandâ€™s landmark "Highway to Hell" album, was never able to partake in his Australian hard rock bandâ€™s later success.
