Since it was purchased during the liquidation of the Weinstein Company at the beginning of last year, the fate of The Six Billion Dollar Man has remained a bit of a mystery until now. The film is set to star Mark Wahlberg, and it finally has a director: Travis Knight. According to a report in Variety, Knight was sought after by several studios owing to the success of his last project, Bumblebee. The Six Billion Dollar Man will be based on the 1970s TV series in which Lee Majors portrayed Colonel Steve Austin, a former astronaut turned secret agent who has superhuman strength thanks to bionic implants that cost $6 billion. Bernie Sanders will be furious when he finds out about this.
