Devlin gradually began writing scripts. His first produced screenplay was for Universal Soldier which was a worldwide hit. He reached prominence as a writer/producer working alongside director Roland Emmerich with whom he teamed after appearing in Emmerich's film Moon 44. Together they cowrote and produced Stargate which became the first movie to have a web site (run by Devlin himself). The team then produced Independence Day and Godzilla. Their final collaboration was on the 2000 Mel Gibson film The Patriot, where Devlin met his future wife. Devlin has also produced Cellular, Who Killed the Electric Car?, and Flyboys. On October 12, 2009 Devlin's screenwriting partner Roland Emmerich confirmed that he and Devlin have written a script for a sequel to Independence Day, and that they are in contract negotiations with Will Smith. They have stated they do not want to make the sequel if Smith cannot return. On June 24, 2011, Devlin confirmed that he and Emmerich have found an idea for the sequel and have written a treatment for it.
