The film JACKIE held its Hong Kong premiere two nights ago. Gordon Lam Ka Tung, Grace Lam Nga Sze and Belinda Yan Zifei attended. Lam Ka Tung was nominated for Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor with TRIVISA (SHU DAI JIU FUNG). He admitted that he still was excited. Although it was his first Best Actor nomination his chance was rather high. Was he confident? Ka Tung said, "I hope so, but with Yam Yin Chai (Richie Jen) and (Shawn) Yue Man Lok everyone hold their hold. I will leave it to the voters. The best is not to think too much about it, the more you do the more pressure you have. I only hope that even (Jordan) Chan Siu Chun would appear that night, then it would be exciting!" Did he want to work with the original team? Ka Tung said that producer Johnnie To Kei Fung would have to answer that question. As far as he knew there was interest in making that three robbers' prequel. Last time they only had one scene in which they brushed by each other. He hoped to have more scenes with each other the next time.
Ka Tung said that he did not accept more film roles because he won a Best Actor award earlier. He did not consider any raise either. Instead someone asked him to make a web series and a micro movie and produce as well. Thus the company planned to hire more help. He also revealed that this year the Federation of Hong Kong Filmmakers spring banquet would introduce 28 new directors of last year as its theme in hopes of continuing to encourage talent cultivation.
