Let's not forget Chow's background as a government spy back in Taiwan. He may have bugged Bruce's office to benefit himself and Lo. No matter how private that Bruce wanted the filming of GOD to be, Lo still stole the original title for himself (Yellow Faced Tiger) by copyrighting it a year before he used it in 1974 (the Don Wong movie with Chuck Norris). I always found it strange that he didn't use it for what became A Man Called Tiger.
The following 1993 forum topic was the first time that I had read about the possibility of Brandon being silenced:

I wish that justice had been done like in Perry Mason: The Case of the Shooting Star (1986). Interestingly, the author of The Crow (James O'Barr) said this about Brandon's emotional preparation for the adaptation: "He said he was going to relate the loss of Shelly to the loss of his father."
Hai_Tien that link for the Brandon article doesn't work.
