*MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

The scriptwriter for '1911' Wang Xingdong participated in a commemoration ceremony yesterday in Guangzhou. He gave an extensive interview about '1911'. He said that the film is not a propaganda movie but rather takes as it's central theme the love story between Huang Xing (Jackie Chan) and Xuzong Han (Li Bingbing). It is their story that runs throughout the movie, tying all the disparate 'historical' bits together. A little bit of interesting information revealed in this interview is that Jaycee plays Jackie's son in the movie. Huang Xing took his 18 year old son into the battle at Xinhai with him.



This year is the 100th anniversary of Revolution, for which the CPPCC National Committee commissioned by the famous writer Wang Xingdong in following the 2009 "Founding of the Republic", the re-creating the epic drama "Revolution", and yesterday, the eve of the Revolution coincided with the 100th anniversary of the uprising Huanghuagang should be invited to the Guangzhou Municipal CPPCC, Wang Xingdong to Guangzhou to participate in commemorative activities, and accepted an exclusive interview with Nanfang Daily journalist, discusses his creative process of film scripts. He said the film is not propaganda, as in the past, as mentioned, this is Jackie Chan and Li Bingbing, "Huang Xing couple" as story line "is still the story of Sun Yat-sen, the difference is with the past, this I investigated a lot of information, with seven plot together, and three-dimensional display of the Sun Yat-sen's great. "At present, the film has finished shooting, forming a 6-hour rough cut version, are moving in two hours The standard length of efforts to "downsizing"

Plot: Li Bingbing will Cantonese for "married Huang Xing"

Wang Xingdong said, "Revolution" before the publicity, most of the modeling, the main battle scenes, with film stars joined more than 60 is again the "All-Star", it is misleading to a trade war large. "This play's most essential areas conflicts is to seize power, all the drama revolves around the conflict started. So, from the beginning, I described the Huanghuagang Uprising led by Huang Xing. But appearances in this drama One actor is not Xing, Sun is still the focus of the performance. In order to show the three-dimensional character of each side of the Sun, I designed the 7 plot. the play is written by Sun Yat-sen the most difficult, because the revolution Huang Xing in the strikes, things are done, these are relatively easy, but how to characterize a behind the scenes, this is not easy. "

As previously played by Jackie Chan promote more play Xing Xing and Li Bingbing wife Xuzong Han, Wang Xingdong revealed that two of the scenes they played a role throughout the play, "first they know is to Guangzhou to organize Huanghuagang Xing uprising, but he was a Hunan, do not understand Cantonese, then arranged for Xu Zonghan League to give him help, the results on the development of the two became lovers. "Huang Xing difficulty of this role is also great, a lot of mental activity. For example Huanghuagang pre-intifada, the situation is not good, playing or not? . At that time Sun Yat-sen in a foreign country, this decision can only be done by the Xing. 10 Road, was planning to attack, but in the end becomes 4, 4 Xing attack is only really kill up this way, and more than 80 people dead, and finally bury the corpses of 72 people, and he broke two fingers. Later, the Wuchang Uprising, Huang fancy boat to the front, one to the front as soon as fighting the enemy, and failed, failed again to commit suicide. Finally, the President also give Li Yuan-hung, make their own Fushuai, has been urging him to the founding of China, but he has always insisted on returning, etc. Sun, Sun immediately returned to the establishment of a provisional government, Huang served as army chief. This is both humility and courage to take responsibility for the great man was not much before the show. "

Cast: Sun Chun fertility turned "Yuan Big Head"

As a main theme of the film, "Revolution" also chose to get 400 million at the box office before the "Founding of the Republic," the star pattern. However, as the writer is concerned, Wang Xingdong do not like this model because we have been watching this story should focus on the plot, but because the star of many and to "count the stars" of the. Wang Xingdong said: "" Founding of the Republic, "the star a bit like a revolving door, everyone gone two lenses. And the star of the show each has its own story, Jackie Chan and Li Bingbing runs through the play, from the initial yellow Gang Uprising Battle of planning to the summer sun, and finally the establishment of the Republic of China, Huang is always present. "

The choice of Jackie Chan plays Xing, Wang Xingdong said it was Jackie Chan volunteer ourselves. "Originally, the crew wanted to let him play Situ Meitang, but Jackie Chan said he would like to play after reading the script Xing, and served as the general director to guide this movie. The son Jaycee Chan also attended the film's shooting. Year Huang Xing and his 18-year-old son to join the European Huang Huanghuagang Uprising, Huang Xing was 37 years old. Jackie Chan Xing speech today his son Jaycee Chan also summoned. "

Wang Xingdong that the Jackie Chan, Li Bingbing, Zhao Wenxuan (play Sun), Sun Chun (played Yuan), and other powerful actors to join, "the cast of the film is absolutely no problem." However, in order to highlight the protagonist of Sun Yat-sen , Wang Xingdong said he had cut his scenes very much appreciate the Yuan. He said that although there is the history of Yuan Development Industry, unified currency and other positive contributions, but also because of the restoration of emperor, usurped the fruits of the revolution was later criticized. The "Revolution" to play the Sun Chun Yuan is not the first time this play this role, as early as in the "Revolution" Zhang Li, executive director of TV serials in 2003, "Towards the Republic", the Sun Chun Yuan had a corner on the interpretation. Wang Xingdong revealed that Sun Chun to successfully play this role, or even "forced" fattening several pounds, so the shape of "Yuan Big Head."




今年是辛亥革命100周年,为此,受全国政协委托,著名编剧王兴东在继2009年《建国大业》之后,再度创作史诗大戏《辛亥革命》,而昨日恰逢辛亥革命前夜的黄花岗起义100周年,应广州市政协邀请,王兴东到广州参加纪念活动,并接受了南方日报记者独家专访,谈起了自己创作这部电影剧本的历程。他透露,这部电影并不像以往宣传中所提的那样,是以成龙和李冰冰这对“黄兴夫妇”为故事主线“依然是孙中山的故事,跟以往不同的是,这次我调查了很多资料,用7个桥段串联起来,立体地展现了孙中山的伟大。”目前,该片已经拍摄完毕,形成了一个6个多小时的粗剪版,正在朝着两个小时的标准长度努力“瘦身”

  剧情:李冰冰因会粤语“嫁黄兴”

  王兴东表示,《辛亥革命》之前的宣传中,大多以造型、战争场面为主,加上该片又是由60多位明星加盟的“全明星阵容”,很容易让人误解为一部商业战争大片。“这个戏的矛盾冲突最本质的地方,在于夺取政权,所有的戏都是围绕着这个冲突展开的。所以,一开始我就描述了黄兴领导的黄花岗起义。但这场戏里出场的黄兴并不是一号男主角,孙中山依然是表现的重点。为了立体地展现孙中山性格中的各个侧面,我设计了7个桥段。这部戏最难写的也是孙中山,因为革命中冲锋陷阵的事都是黄兴做的,这些相对容易,但如何刻画一个幕后的人,这是很不容易的。”

  至于此前宣传较多的成龙扮演的黄兴和李冰冰扮演的黄兴妻子徐宗汉,王兴东透露说他们俩的戏份起到了贯穿全剧的作用,“最早两人认识,就是黄兴到广州来组织黄花岗起义,但他一个湖南人,不懂粤语,于是同盟会就安排了徐宗汉给他帮忙,结果两人就发展成了情侣。“黄兴这个角色的难度也很大,心理活动很多。比如黄花岗起义前,形势并不好,打还是不打?。那时候孙中山在国外,这个决定只能由黄兴做。当时计划10路进攻,但最后变成4路,4路进攻就只有黄兴这一路真的杀上去了,死了80多人,最后埋葬收尸72人,自己也断了两根手指头。后来武昌起义,黄兴化装坐船到了前线,一到前线就马上杀敌,又失败了,失败了又要自杀。最后还把大总统让给黎元洪,自己做副帅,国内一直在催他建国,可他却一直坚持等孙中山回国,孙中山一回国马上就成立临时政府,黄兴担任陆军总长。这是个既谦让又勇于承担责任的伟大人物,以前表现得也不多。”

  演员:孙淳增肥变身“袁大头”

  作为一部主旋律电影,《辛亥革命》同样选择了之前获得4亿票房的《建国大业》的明星模式。不过,作为编剧而言,王兴东并不喜欢这种模式,因为本来大家看这种故事都应该专注于剧情,但却因为明星众多而转为“数星星”了。王兴东说:“《建国大业》的明星有点像走马灯,每个人两个镜头就没了。而这部戏的明星每个都有自己的故事,成龙和李冰冰贯穿全剧,从最初的黄花岗起义策划到阳夏保卫战,到最后民国成立,黄兴始终在场。”

  至于选择成龙扮演黄兴,王兴东称这是成龙自荐的。“本来剧组是想让他演司徒美堂,但成龙看完剧本表示自己想演黄兴,并且担任总导演来导这个电影。这次成龙儿子房祖名也参加了电影的拍摄。当年黄兴和他18岁的儿子黄一欧一起参加黄花岗起义,当时黄兴37岁。今天演黄兴的成龙也把他的儿子房祖名叫来了。”

  王兴东认为,这次有成龙、李冰冰、赵文瑄(扮演孙中山)、孙淳(扮演袁世凯)等实力演员加盟,“这部电影在演员阵容上绝对没有问题。”不过,为了突出主角孙中山,王兴东说他不得不删减了自己很欣赏的袁世凯的戏份。他说,虽然历史上袁世凯有发展实业、统一币制等积极贡献,但也因复辟称帝、篡夺革命果实被后人诟病。而《辛亥革命》中扮演袁世凯的孙淳这次也不是第一次扮演这个角色,早在《辛亥革命》执行导演张黎2003年拍摄电视剧《走向共和》时,孙淳就诠释过袁世凯一角。王兴东透露说,孙淳这次为了成功扮演角色,甚至“被迫”增肥了好几十斤,以便形似“袁大头”。
