Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg - THE $6 BILLION MAN

The 'bergs have it!

Deadline Hollywood wrote:

EXCLUSIVE: Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg, the duo behind the critically-acclaimed and box office success Lone Survivor, are re-teaming for the feature film version of The Six Billion Dollar Man with various writers circling the project for The Weinstein Co.’s Dimension Films label. (Yes, billion with a ‘b’). Berg will direct and Wahlberg is attached to star in the film about former astronaut Steve Austin who, after a horrific crash of an experimental plane, is saved by doctors when he is fitted with bionic replacements — both legs, his right arm and left eye. With super-human power, he becomes a force to be reckoned with for the government as a secret agent for the Office of Scientific Intelligence.

Dirk Diggler as Steve Austin. WIN.

Peter Berg directing. WIN.

Very happy to hear that the 'comedy' remake has been ditched.

Having Lee Majors cameo as Oscar Goldman would be way too obvious, wouldn't it?

I've never been the biggest Wahlberg fan, but somehow he does seem like a really good fit for the character.

And yes, they definitely need to have the sound effect and the slo-mo.

No, the comedy version was the worst news ever. With this I'm still willing to wait and see.

I think a better inflation rate would be calling it the 60 million dollar man vs. 1000 time more 6 billion. Must be all gold and diamond implants! LOL

It's more about pronunciation than finance. "6 Billion" sounds more like the original title.

But, really, given all the precious metals that go into modern military tech I wouldn't be surprised at gold plated bionics...

The sound effect wasn't around until either the second season or late in the first season if I recall.
