Huang Xiaoming, Deng Chao and Tong Dawei worked on the Peter Chan Ho Sun produced and directed film. Earlier it shot in Tianjun then in Beijing. The story took place from the 80s to today, as three Beijing University students founded an English training school with dreams of going to the U.S. The trio's costumes were unveiled. Huang Xiaoming played the "earthy one" (native), Deng Chao played the "overseas one" (student returning from overseas studies) and Tong Dawei played the "angry youth". They posed for pictures in front of the blackboard of the classroom and their looks were called the "most down to earth in history".
When Huang Xiaoming first started, cinematographer Christopher Doyle (To Ho Fung) complained that he was too handsome. With the costume director's transformation, Huang Xiaoming stood next to Chan Ho Sun and remained undetected. Chan thought he was a set assistant. The film has not been named yet as the title was being voted for. They included PARTNERS, OCEAN WIDE SKY EMPTY and THE AMERICAN MOON.
