mark-wahlbergThis one comes from the Tracking Board and can only be considered a rumor for now. The report says that Transformers: Age Of Extinction star Mark Wahlberg will be Steve Austin in Universal Picture's remake of the Six Million Dollar Man. Harvey Weinstein is set to produce with Peter Berg on as producer and possibly director.

The project has been bouncing around Hollywood for the last decade and a half including a script by Kevin Smith (which became the Bionic Man comic book). Jim Carrey was even attached to the project for a while.

Wahlberg is currently working on the upcoming thriller The Gambler.
