Over the past couple decades, there's been several attempts to adapt The Six Million Dollar Man into a feature-length film. As recently as 2011, Leonardo DiCaprio ("Titanic") was said to be in negotiations to star with Bryan Singer ("X-Men: Days of Future Past") set to direct, but that fell through. Also in 2011, screenwriter/director Kevin Smith ("Clerks") adapted his screenplay for The Six Million Dollar Man into a comic book. It was published by Dynamite Comics and was titled, "The Bionic Man."

Now, tracking-board.com is claiming that the star and director of Lone Survivor will reteam for Universal's next attempt at making The Six Million Dollar Man film.
"We’re hearing that will star in ’ film remake of the 1970s sci-fi TV series . The story follows an astronaut, Steve Austin, whose body is rebuilt with cybernetic technology after a traumatic injury from an aircraft crash. is attached to produce and possibly direct if the project comes together. Harvey Weinstein is also attached in some producing capacity." - Donna Whitehead


From 1974 to 1978, ABC ran the television series, The Six Million Dollar Man. It featured actor Lee Majors as ex-astronaut Steve Austin. He was severely injured during a test flight and was rebuilt using advanced technology, called Bionics. As you can guess, it cost the fictional government agency, known as OSI, six million dollars to rebuild him. He received bionic legs, arm and an eye. His bionic left eye that can zoom in like a camera and snap photos, and is also capable of night vision. His bionic legs give him the ability to run incredibly fast. His bionic right arm is said to be as strong as a bulldozer. Neat!
The Six Million Dollar Man is an American television series about a cyborg working for the OSI starring Lee Majors as Steve Austin. The show was based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin. It was initially aired on the ABC network for five seasons between 1974 to 1978, following three television pilot movies in 1973. The series spawned a spinoff, The Bionic Woman, in 1976 and was also the subject of three made-for-television reunion films in the 1980s and 90s. - bionic.wikia

We can rebuild him, we have the technology.

I think the image of Wahlberg flipping off to the air is a perfect image to give to Hollywood. Do we really need a movie based off of the 6 Million Dollar Man.

Sounds like the new Robocop movie, which I watched last night. And knowing Hollywood they'll either make this far too serious or totally ridiculous.

@AOSgotAlright

Then he's no longer the "$6 Million Man", is he.


You should google product branding.
