Judgement today in Nina Wang case
A High Court judge will hand down his judgement this morning in one of the most celebrated cases of recent years - the probate battle over the multi-billion dollar fortune of Asia's richest businesswoman, Nina Wang. The case pits feng shui master Tony Chan against the Chinachem Charitable Foundation. The judge, Mr Justice Lam, will have to rule on two competing wills - an earlier one transferring Mrs Wang's fortune to the charitable foundation, and a later one giving it all to Mr Chan. The case began when the feng shui master emerged following Mrs Wang's death, and claimed to be her lover and the designated heir of her estate. He said Mrs Wang had given him billions of dollars in cash, and wanted to have his child. However, the late tycoon's family members testified for the charity foundation, saying the money was merely fees for his fungshui services. They said even if the two had anything beyond a professional relationship, Mr Chan was nothing more than a "toyboy". (RTHK)

Key words, 'based on the novel'.

If I read it correctly, after Zhang Ziyi bailed out/got kicked out, the script was rewritten to make the story of Lili and Snow a flashback recalled by Lili's 2 granddaughters Sophie and Lily, possible mix race or 'foreign' in a modern setting. So, maybe Hugh Jackson appears in this new section. Reportedly, his role is rather small [enough for a paycheck and marketing :)]
