Mark wahlberg is The Six Billion Dollar Man?

November 6th, 2014 by Marc Comments

It seems that, due to inflation, the Six Million dollar Man is now the Six Billion Dollar man… and it’s looking like it’ll be Mark Wahlberg.

Lone Survivor director Peter Berg will direct the movie according to Deadline and Wahlberg will play astronaut Steve Austin who almost dies in a plane crash and will have most of his body replaced with bionics. He will then become a part-man/part-machine secret government agent for the Office of Scientific Intelligence.

It will be produced by Dimension films and be released in 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
