Long before game designer Ken Levine created games like BioShock and System Shock 2, he was keen to get into the movie business. So keen that he penned a script for a movie starring Amy Grant.
Hollywood hired Levine to pen the screenplay, which was called Devil's Advocate (not the 1997 Keanu Reeves film, website Destructoid points out). The story was about "a devil who comes to Earth to corrupt an incorruptible human", recalls Levine. And according to the game designer, it was "fucking terrible".
The movie never went into production, and Levine took his paycheck and bought a VCR and a Sega Master System. And everyone lived happily ever after.
