Zhang Guoli who takes the role of Chiang Kai-shek is also a producer of the film. To make a milestone piece, Zhang, like the others involved made a great effort. To be more like the character he played, Zhang only ate one meal a day and has lost about 5 kilograms.

The final length of the film will be 2 hours and 14 minutes. It means another 10 minutes will be cut. Some actors and actresses will not see their performances.

Director Huang Jianxin said, "I'm afraid more parts may be cut. It's hard. It's a pity. We all appreciate this chance of cooperation. Some called me and hoped at least one shot would be kept. But sometimes you have to cut all that one actor or actress has played."

The film will be released on September 17th across China.
