A new behind-the-scenes video of Forever Young was released today. Ziyi talks a bit about her character here.


The long-awaited film Forever Young will finally be shown in theaters, after almost 5 years of post-production. The cast and the director attended a press conference in Beijing to annouce the official release date, which will be on January 12th, 2018.

The film, written and directed by acclaimed writer-turned-director Li Fangfang, was originally planned to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Tsinghua University in 2011, with a budget of over 100 million yuan. The story covers four generations spanning a hundred years of modern Chinese history since World War II.

Actress Zhang Ziyi and actor Huang Xiaoming both mentioned in previous interviews that they cried after reading the script. By the end of 2012, the film had finished shooting but nothing has been heard since. Director Li commented in June 2014 that she is extremely meticulous about post-production and the film will be ready for release by the end of that year. However, it was not.

Sun Zhonghuai, CEO of Penguin Pictures and Vice President at Tencent Holdings Ltd., one of the film’s producers, said the nearly 6-year wait has made this production “a legend” in Chinese film industry.
