Not exactly the Tupac film we’ve been waiting for.

Tupac movies have always been “in the works,” but Pac’s legacy doesn’t necessarily have to be immortalized by a big budget Blockbuster. Our friends over in China are making an unauthorized biopic-slash-new narrative about Tupac Shakur called Until The End Of Time, named after the posthumous album and song of the same name from 2001.

The very first and very odd trailer to the movie came out at the end of October, which follows a young Chinese college student and “hip-hop head” who transports us through nostalgic, Groove Theory-induced flashbacks to the ’90s as he uncovers the rapper’s life story in a tale of American civil rights and activism. The bizarre film’s random and low-budget quality may be its calling card, but what’s perplexingly on point is their portrayal of Tupac himself, who’s played by newcomer Tsalta Baptiste. Just watch Baptiste’s audition tape for the movie and compare it to Straight Outta Compton‘s Tupac played by Marcc Rose. Check out the trailer to the film above.
