A musical based on pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli purchasing the one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album is currently in the works.

When Shkreli copped Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, a hoax surfaced claiming that the rappers, assisted by Bill Murray, would be permitted to execute a heist to steal back the album.

The hoax inspired Lauren Gundrum, Joel Esher and Jono Hustis to spinning the drama into a musical production aptly titled Martin Shkreli's Game: How Bill Murray joined the Wu-Tang Clan. They’ve created an IndieGogo page and are hoping to premiere the musical at this year’s Midtown International Theater Festival.

“Martin Shkreli is a bad man, and he needs to get his. Bill Murray and Wu-Tang members RZA, GZA, and Ghostface Killah (and maybe even the Ghost of a certain deceased Wu-Tang member) are ready to give it to him,” the producers wrote, “but they need your help in order to do it.”

The producers are currently auditioning all roles on Backstage.com, and you can watch the musical's trailer above.
