Dimension Films has slated The Six Billion Dollar Man, starring Mark Wahlberg, for a December 22, 2017 release.
SciFi4Me previously reported on the film’s initial reboot pick up. Since then, Damián Szifron (Wild Tales) has written the screenplay and replaced Peter Berg as director. Production is set to start September 2016.
“Writing the screenplay was such a fantastic ride and embarking on this journey with Mark, Bob and Stephen to take this story to a whole new level is simply spectacular,” said Szifron. “Growing up, these kind of films left an indelible mark on me and now it feels so good to be making one.”
Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Bob Weinstein are producing the film. Overseeing production for TWC-Dimension are Matthew Signer, EVP of Production and Creative Affairs, and Keith Levine, SVP of Production and Development.
