Although The Warlords post production is yet to be completed, but after the investors watched the unfinished product, they're full of confidence as they registered the movie in next year's Academy Awards!

Directed by Peter Chan, The Warlords will represent itself as a Mainland China film has registered for the Best Foreign Film in next year's Academy Awards, but the requirement for Best Foreign Film is that the film must be screened for at least 7 days before the end of September 2007, with the film still doing its post production, it's still a question whether the registration would be successful. Director Peter Chan expressed: "Currently the special effects and sound effects are not yet completed, normally it would require 6 months, thus we would not be able to meet the deadline. (Would it be a pity?) Every film has its own fate, it can't be sad to be a pity, if we failed to make it this year, there's always next year, if it could make it this year, surely it would help promote the film." Due to the rush of the film's post production, the film had redraw itself from film festivals in Venice, Toronto and Roma.

When told that the film tried to register for the Academy Awards, one of the male lead Andy said: "Everyone including the production team put all their efforts for the film, especially the director, I'll be delighted if the registration is successful, most importantly the post production must be done properly, winning the hearts of the audience is more important."
