    Transformers Star Mark Wahlberg 'To Appear In Remake Of The Six Million Dollar Man'
    Hollywood star is being eyed-up by movie bosses for the role of astronaut Steve Austin

    By Owen Tonks On July 7, 2014
    Mark Wahlberg is reportedly in talks to appear in a remake of The Six Million Dollar Man.

    The American actor is said to have had meetings with Universal bosses to discuss playing the part of astronaut Steve Austin in the film.

    The story, which was originally broadcast as a sci-fi series in the 70s, would follow Steve Austin, originally played by Lee Majors in the television version, as his body is rebuilt with cybernetic technology following a plane crash.

    Battleship filmmaker Peter Berg will apparently work on the project as a producer alongside Harvey Weinstein, according to The Tracking Board.

    A film script for The Six Million Dollar Man was originally written by Kevin Smith in the 90s but it was eventually turned into a comic book instead.

    Leonardo DiCaprio was also rumored to be starring in a movie version in 2013 but no film ever came to fruition.

    I just hope he does a better job then the last time he played an astronaut!

    Tim Burton's Apes movie was the first time I saw an audience look raped as they exited the theater.

    Well, if anyone has the acting chops and dynamism of Lee Majors, it's Mark Wahlberg.

    He good in the Fighter and The Departed. He can only play certain types of roles. Once he steps out of his wheelhouse, he is Keanu Reeves doing a British accent bad.

    I think it will be a great movie. It should do as well as The Lone Ranger.
