Mark Wahlberg's 'Six Billion Dollar Man' Gets Delayed

mark-wahlbergMark Wahlberg's The Six Billion Dollar Man has been delayed. It was slated to be released on December 22, 2017 but the movie hasn't cast anyone besides its star and they haven't started filming according to The Tracking Board. It wouldn't be impossible for them to cast, film, and shoot the movie before December but considering how little we've heard about it it wouldn't be surprising if this delay turns out to be true. The Weinstein Company has yet to make the move official.

The Six Billion Dollar Man is based on the classic 1970s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, which itself was based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin. Wahlberg remains attached to play military officer Steve Austin, who becomes part of a top secret government program after nearly dying in a horrific accident. With the help of cutting-edge technology, Steve is given extraordinary abilities that make him the world's first truly bionic man.

Director Damian Szifron has been attached to the project for a long time after his Oscar nominated debut Wild Tales. He has also been rumored to be in the running for Justice League Dark.
