BUMBLEBEE Director Travis Knight Will Direct Mark Wahlberg in THE SIX BILLION DOLLAR MAN
Mark Wahlberg’s Six Billion Dollar Man film project has landed a great new director! Warner Bros. has hired Bumblebee and Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight to helm the project! I love what Knight has done with those two films, and it’ll be cool to see how he handles The Six Billion Dollar Man.
The Six Billion Dollar Man is based on the classic 1970s sci-fi TV series The Six Million Dollar Man, which tells the story of former astronaut named Colonel Steve Austin, who had superhuman strength due to bionic implants and was employed as a secret agent. The series and film are based on novel Cyborg, by Martin Caidin.
Knight will direct from a script written by Bill DuBuque (The Accountant). Peter Berg was originally supposed to direct the film, but he ended up dropping out of the project.
What do you all think about Knight taking the helm on this movie?
