Ken Levine killed Gore Verbinski's 'Bioshock" movie
As Levine would explain it, at a promotional event for his new Bioshock Infinite game while in the UK no less, the movie was canned because Verbinski wanted to make an R-rated movie and Universal didn't want to spend nine figures making it. When they countered with a much smaller offer, Verbinski backed out. Levine was told by 2K that he had the last word on what happened to that movie. So he killed it.
