Remember Wu-Tang Clan’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin album? To make a statement about the value of music in the era of streaming, they created this one album and made just one copy of the CD. They then sold that disc at auction for US$2 million.
Cool–except that the buyer was pharma bro douchebag Martin Shkreli.
When he was arrested and convicted of fraud, the US Government seized his assets, including this one-of-a-kind CD. It languishes in some evidence lockup somewhere.
Weird story, right? It’s certainly weird enough for Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company to make a movie for Netflix.
Apparently, this will be a scripted drama, not a straight documentary. There’s no further information on who will star in the movie or when things might go into production. But there’s a director: Paul Downs Colaizzo, who was behind the movie Brittan Runs a Marathon.
This will be goofy. Can’t wait.
