Warner Bros. has set an early summer release date of May 31, 2019, for Mark Wahlberg’s sci-fi action movie “The Six Billion Dollar Man.”
Warner Bros. bought the rights to the project late last year from the Weinstein Company, which had been developing the movie with “Wild Tales” director Damian Szifron.
“The Six Billion Dollar Man” is based on the science-fiction television series “The Six Million Dollar Man,” about a former astronaut, Colonel Steve Austin, portrayed by Lee Majors. Austin’s character had superhuman strength due to bionic implants and was employed as a secret agent. The series ran for five seasons on ABC between 1973 and 1978 and was based on the Martin Caidin novel “Cyborg.”
