As if Marky Mark being in Transformers: Age of Extinction isn’t enough, he’s now attached to another potential franchise.
Yes, the Lee Majors TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, which told the story of an astronaut who almost died in an airplane crash but was rebuilt with the best technology in the world, is set for the big screen at the producing hands of Harvey Weinstein – and not for the first time – remember Kevin Smith was briefly involved and even handed in a script? Almost 20 years ago? Feeling old, yet? Anyway, I digress… it almost got made in 2003 with Jim Carrey starring and at the time it was set to be a Starsky and Hutch type comedy at the hands of Todd Phillips too.
Anyway, the latest rumour has Battleship director Peter Berg attached with Mark Wahlberg himself in the starring role… em, yay?
No word on when we will see it – if at all – or if they really can rebuild him and if they have the technology, but time will tell…
