Movie In The Works Featuring Life of Late AC/DC Singer Bon Scott

11 713

With AC/DC currently on tour here in the U.S., word has come from down under that movie maker Eddie Martin has begun work on the early stages of his film that is set to feature former AC/DC frontman Bon Scott. Scott died in 1980 at the age of 33 after a night of heavy drinking – a scenario similar to those we have heard regarding the death of rock legends such as John Bonham, Keith Moon, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.

Scott’s untimely passing came just as the group was beginning to realize their dream of success. Their 1979 hit album Highway To Hell was rising rapidly on the U.S. charts, and the group was poised to become one of the most recognized names in hard rock history.Bon Scott

A number of books have been written about Bon Scott, which many of his friends consider inaccurate, and do not tell the true story of Scott’s life. Martin hopes to set the record straight and has conducted research and tracked down friends and associates in order to assemble an accurate record of the singer’s life.

Speaking on the subject of how his film will differ from the books, he says, “We want to go much deeper with the movie.”

Filming is planned to begin within 18 months and may take up to three years to finalize and release.

No name has been selected for the film yet, and Martin plans to meet with the current members of AC/DC next month and seek their approval for the project, although he has heard that the group has no problem with the project.

    so this person was 11 years old when bon was with gloria…
    she is too young to even know…
    she is totally reliant on what other people have told her…

    but buzz bidstrup who is one of bons best mates distinctly remembers bon scott and gloria torrance being in a relationship…

    please stop contacting people and making statements you are not qualified to make!!!

    prior to making those headlines… this person would say”if he is your dad then he is your brothers dad too… and her mother would say… “if you get any of your dads money you have to share it with them”…

    but since this story about me in the movie…she has changed her story…

    picture this people…

    your brother makes some big headlines when he applies for a movie…

    so you decide to contact people and claim he is not who he says???

    why would you do that to a member of your own family???

    it seems that she has been accepting financial help from people in exchange for her co-operation…

    so tell us jan??? what have they been giving you???

    So Ben, you are telling us your mother and your sister are both telling lies, and for what reason? Why would people be paying them and for what gain to themselves? Kate

    This site looks dormant, but in case it isn’t…please note the following…

    * Eddie Martin is fully of shit. Me and my buddies know for certain that NONE of Bon’s close friends will be taking part in this movie. On any level whatsoever. We also know for certain that AC/DC will NOT have anything to do with this film.

    * Ben O/Brien is delusional, drug-addicted, maniacal, has threatened his mother with a rifle, and has threatened to burn down his sister’s home.

    Thanx,

    Comments coming in for this entry may be dormant, but if your impression is that the entire site is dormant, you may want to take a closer look. It is far from dormant.

    this ben guy is a nut case me and a few online friends have flushed him out before and now he’s making claims to be on top of the list of choices to play bon in the movie.don’t believe this ben guy or you’ll be pulled right into his little fantasy.he’s a drug addict and i feel a dangerous person who is out for personal gain at any cost.he is the one who went to bons grave and desecrated it with all kinds of writing and scribbling all over bons plaque. this guy needs to be stopped and if any media ever prints all his garbage all their doing is feuling the flame of his insanity…….scott

    ok firstly…

    i do not have a sister…
    my mother may a daughter…to explain that i do not know janet smith… never have done…

    she has(from my mothers house) stolen pictures of me as a child and posted them on the internet without consent…
    she has stolen many things that legally belong to me… including a letter from the queen… that welcomed me to being a registered living citizen at age 11…

    im told she has a whole treasure cove of things that she gleefully offers people to look apon or use…
    bare in mind i do not know this person and she has been making threats towards me…

    she has to support her omg clubs wishes… even if that requires lying…her connection with this omg stems from a schoolday friendship…

    look at how she is totally adament she knows bon and gloria where not friends…
    would anyone tell there 11 year old daughter about a love trist???
    if you go through methodically all there statements you will plainly see they are telling lies…

    secondly…

    my mother is severly disoriented from alzheimers disease… she has phoned me asking who i was and why i called her…she gets lost going to the local shops…

    ok now here is a quote…

    ” i are not and never have been addicted to any drug whatsoever… i have never takin any type of pill or powder…ever in my life.”

    as for the movie…

    readers please remember that only information that is official can be relied apon…

    “if” the movie goes ahead… ac/dc will be involved… and if bons old mates dont wanna be involved so be it.

    Ben, Ben, Ben it appears other people have flushed you out for the liar you are, I think it’s time for you to let Bon rest in peace, change your fake name to Ben Cobain and start the chain of lies with a new Dad and memories of Kurt, weirdo

    Bejamim obrien (goes by scott) You mentioned in your interview at the cemetery, that you changed your name by deed poll, I checked with births, deaths and marriages, and not surprisingly there is no one registered as Ronald Belford Scott as you stated, care to elaborate?
