Travis Knight To Direct Six Billion Dollar Man

“Bumblebee” and “Kubo and the Two Strings” director Travis Knight has come on board to helm “Six Billion Dollar Man,” the Warner Bros. Pictures film adaptation of the classic TV series “The Six Million Dollar Man” with Mark Wahlberg still attached to star.

The hiring comes almost a year after the previously attached Damian Szifron departed the project, Szifron left over creative differences after having helped develop the project for three years.

Wahlberg will play Col. Steve Austin, a downed pilot who is saved by an operation that makes him part machine and gives him superhuman strength.

Bill DuBuque penned the script for the new take while Sue Kroll, Bill Gerber and Steve Levinson are producing.
