Late AC/DC Singer Bon Scott's Estate Refuse Story Rights For Biopic
. The production company behind a planned biopic about late AC/DC singer Bon Scott is moving forward with their plans for the film, despite the refusal of the legendary singer's estate to sell them story rights, according to BraveWords.
A representative of the U.S. based production company High Voltage Productions, LLC, tells BraveWords, "The Bon Scott Estate is simply refusing any financial offer at all to option the story rights or cooperate in any way with the development of the film.
"Our company even offered participation in the project both creatively and financially upon agreement. Our legal team has made it quite clear that we do not even need to secure or option story rights as Mr. Scott is deceased and the Estate cannot preclude us from making an unauthorized biopic or docudrama. It was vetted through two lawyers at Stanford Law School, as well as our own legal team.
