For years Hollywood has been trying to get the Six Billion Dollar Man to the big screen, with the property bouncing around studios until it landed firmly with Warner Bros. Now the film may have found its director.
The film will be based off of ABC’s Six Million Dollar Man, which ran from 1974 to 1978. The show started Lee Majors as NASA Colonel Steve Austin, whose body was smashed to pieces after test flying an experimental aircraft. The U.S government rebuilds Austin, upgrading him with bionic parts, giving him superhuman abilities. Steve then becomes a secret agent for the U.S government, kicking all sorts of ass with his new body. This role sounds right up Wahlberg’s street.
Due to the inflation, $6 million wouldn’t even cover the costs of Wahlberg’s fee, never mind a bionic man nowadays, so it’s been upper by 1000 percent to the Six Billion Dollar Man, which sounds about right.
There’s been so much uncertainty regarding this project, I feel like things are finally falling into place.
