A planned film biopic of former AC/DC singer Bon Scott has been given the green light.

Screen Australia, the film fund supported by the Australian government, has awarded funding to the project which is being put together by director Eddie Martin and producer Lizzette Atkins, according to Blabbermouth.

Scott joined the Australian stadium rockers in 1974 but died of acute alcohol poisoning in 1980 at the age of 33. Brian Johnson replaced the singer and has remained the frontman of AC/DC ever since.

A play dedicated to the late singer's life opened in Australia earlier this year.

AC/DC have recently suggested that they will release a new album and tour in 2013 to mark their 40th anniversary, but are unlikely to commit to a jaunt as big as the two-year Black Ice World Tour, which concluded last year.

The band released a new live DVD AC/DC: Live At River Plate earlier this year.
