A Theoretical Wu-Tang Shaolin Caper Movie Script

You’ve probably heard the story of the purchase of Wu-Tang Clan’s ultra-uber-rare Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album to Mark Shkreli, the hated pharmaceutical executive. If so, you’ve probably been made aware of the awesome-but-fake codicil in the sales agreement that allowed for Wu-Tang (or Bill Murray) to steal it back with no legal repercussions.

Since it came to light a week ago, the caper story has taken on a life of its own. One fan has already produced a 70-page script on how such a caper might go down. It’s not exactly The Italian Job, but it’s a lot of fun. There are cameos by Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Guy Fieri, the ghost of ODB, Fidel Castro and even Kim Jong-Un. And naturally, there’s a big part for Bill Murray.

Please, Hollywood. Get this movie made. (Via Pigeons and Planes)
