In 2015, Wu-Tang Clan released one-of-a-kind album Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.
It is a 31-track double-LP and was sold at auction for $2 million, coming with an 88-year copyright making its commercial release impossible until 2103. It was bought by Martin Shkreli, a hedge fund manager, infamous for jacking up the price of a cancer and AIDS medication.
Now, this whole sordid story will be told in a new Netflix film.
The announcement of the project was tucked into a press release about screenwriter Ian Edelman’s new movie, American Sole (starring Pete Davidson and O’Shea Jackson Jr.).
As Collider reports, Brittany Runs a Marathon director Paul Downs Colaizzo will helm the project, with Wu-Tang’s own RZA producing alongside Brad Pitt’s Plan B. Edelman will be working off Colaizzo’s original draft of the script.
