Someone Wrote A Screenplay About Wu-Tang And Bill Murray Pulling A Heist On Martin Shkreli
Controversial capitalist Martin Shkreli deserves to have his face on the cover of Time Magazine as the troll of the year. Last week the Internet exploded over the news that he paid $2 million to buy the only copy of Wu-Tang’s Once Upon a Time in Shaolin. Then the story got even crazier when the fake news “broke” that Bill Murray could somehow save the album from landing in Shkreli’s hands by heisting it.

Jordan VanDina fired up Final Draft to write an actual screenplay imagining what the saga would look like on the big screen. It includes Morgan Freeman narrating, Shawshank-style and appearances by Justin Bieber, Donald Trump, Mark Cuban, Michael Jordan, Guy Fieri and basically every single other person in the pop culture universe. For example:
Look… All I’m saying is that Hollywood needs to make this happen.
