“The Six Billion Dollar Man” flick is a reboot of 1970’s classic television show of the same name. The movie will feature “The Departed” actor Mark Wahlberg in the lead role as Colonel Steve Austin. “The Six Billion Dollar Man” movie is directed and written by “Wild Tales” fame Argentinian director Damián Szifron and is slated to release on Dec 22, 2017, for which the filming will probably start from next September. Read on to find out more interesting revelations on “The Six Billion Dollar Man” scoop ahead.

According to Screenrant, The Weinstein Company, in a recent announcement, stated that the production will start from next September and is planned to release in December 2017. The movie now will be taken ahead by director Damián Szifron and not Peter Berg as it was earlier planned.


The movie is centred on Colonel Steve Austin who is a part of a top secret program run by the government and faces a nearly death experience during a mission. With the help of advance technology and medical facilities, he is brought back to life as a bionic man who has extraordinary abilities which no normal human being can have.

Mark Wahlberg in a recent interview stated that he is very excited to be a part of “The Six Billion Dollar Man” with the go ahead of Bob Weinstein and Damián Szifron.

Szifron, on the other hand, mentioned that such films leave a great impact on him and writing a screenplay for Bob Weinstein has been a wonderful part of the journey.

“The Six Billion Dollar Man” will battle against “The Croods 2” and Disney’s untitled live action fairy tale movie at the box-office during its release and has a good chance to mark a commercial success against the slated movies.
