Infinite, starring Mark Wahlberg, is not a good movie. Which is shocking, I know.

However, the IMDB trivia page gives me this, and I have to respect the hustle:

The movie made its what into Hollywood through crowd sourcing. The movie is based off the book "The Reincarnationist Papers" by D. Eric Maikranz. Eric found it difficult to catch the attention of a literary agent that would sell the book to Hollywood. Eric instead crowd sourced his agent hunt by offering a commission to his readers for anyone that could get his book into Hollywood. And by putting that commission on the first page of his book Eric empowered an army of readers to get his book onto the big screen. Eighteen months later Eric received an email from an Hollywood assistant director that found his book in a hostel in Nepal. In 2017 Paramount pictures bought the rights.
