The story that JC and I always talked about would begin with Chad getting in trouble with a Chinese Triad gang in Los Angeles (which has a huge Chinese population), and Alex having to come from Hong Kong to help him out.

The problem we've always had was that the rights are all over the place. This is because the original copyright owner was Stone Group, a now-defunct company that was partly owned by Michael Douglas and partly owned by Moshe Diamant. Moshe's half was seized by Credit Lyonnais Bank a number of years ago, due to some financial improprieties on Moshe's behalf.
