As an unusual note, the name Wu-Tang Clan was borrowed from a kung fu movie, after they discovered that several of them were aficionados of the Hong Kong based Shaw Brothers studios, which produced about 1000 movies.

The Wu-Tang Clan even purchased the marketing rights for a bunch of those movies, which it re-released on DVD under their own, Wu-Tang Clan label.

This may have inspired another company, called Celestial Pictures, to buy up the rights of about 760 of the movies, which it is remastering in much higher quality and selling on DVD. So far these include The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, Five Deadly Venoms and The One-Armed Swordsman.

In any event, perhaps Mr. Andre Johnson offended the Shaolin temple, and was trying to atone for it.

Or something.
