EXCLUSIVE: Gravitas Ventures has acquired domestic rights to the Los Angeles Film Festival premiere Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong, starring Jamie Chung (Once Upon a Time‘s Mulan) and Bryan Greenberg. Gravitas is releasing the film in limited theaters along with a same day multi-platform VOD on February 12, in time for Valentine’s Day.
Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong follows Chinese-American Ruby (Chung), who meet ex-pat Josh (Greenberg) one night. He shows her around the city, and through their carefree conversations, they soon realize they have an undeniable attraction.
Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong marks the feature directorial debut of Emily Ting.

She also served as associate producer on Yen Tan’s Sundance Film Festival 2013 entry Pit Stop, and executive produced Dave Boyle’s Man From Reno which won Best Narrative Film at Los Angeles Film Festival. Both titles were nominated at the Indie Spirits.
Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong was also written and produced by Ting, along with Sophia Shek producing. The acquisition deal was negotiated by Chad Miller, VP of Filmmaker Relations at Gravitas Ventures through Red Sea Media as well as Ramo Law on behalf of the filmmakers.
