Filmmaker Rob Liotti is determined to press on with a planned BON SCOTT biopic, despite the fact the tragic rocker's AC DC bandmates refuse to support the project.

The producer admits the latest Jimi Hendrix movie, featuring Andre Benjamin as the guitar great, has inspired him to continue with his plans to put Scott's life on the big screen without the blessing of his bandmates and family.

The Hendrix movie was made without the Ok from the rocker's estate - and as a result, filmmakers could not use the guitarist's music.

Liotti says, "The Hendrix film clears the way for this project... We have a First Amendment right to tell this story, and we have the ability to utilise the Fair Use Doctrine in assisting us to do so. We're trying to educate the public about this guy's life and tribulations. What the hell is the problem with that?"

Liotti's film, tentatively titled Bon Scott: The Legend of Ac Dc Unauthorized, has been blocked by the band many times.

The moviemaker reveals, "The band's lawyers went so far as to forbid me from speaking to current or former members... I talk to some of these people. There's zero harm in that, let alone anything illegal."
