Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung have been cast as the leads in indie It’s Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong.

The romance film, which recently won the Canon Filmmakers Award from Film Independent, will mark the feature directorial debut of Emily Ting, who also wrote the script.

Chung, who is engaged to Greenberg, will play a Chinese-American girl who, while visiting Hong Kong for the first time for business, meets American expat Josh (Greenberg). An attraction forms between them, but the timing might not be on their side.
